Bendigo Estate Pinot Noir 2017: 5 Stars

March 01, 2019

"Certified organic and biodynamic, the memorable 2017 vintage (5*) is 'a single ferment . . . personally selected by Rudi Bauer as it best expresses the Bendigo Estate vineyard'. Estate-grown and hand-picked at Bendigo, in Central Otago, it was matured in French oak casks (50 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep and youthful in colour, it is highly fragrant, weighty and very savoury, with ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing notable density, complexity and harmony. A very 'complete' wine, set to flourish for a decade, it's already a lovely mouthful."

"Distinctive bouquet with a core of minerality and varietal fruit signatures. Apple and pear skin, sweet lemon and blossoms, a gentle white pepper spice. Dry on the palate with a core of fruit, adding a smooth satin texture. Abundant acidity, white spice and a floral mineral quality. Well made, decent finish, lots to like."
