Barrington River Block Pinot Noir

Barrington Wines was established by the Smythe and Dowling families in 2011 in Alexandra, Central Otago. They purchased an 8 ha site with four clones of Pinot Noir planted in 2002. This region is challenging with semi-arid soils and extreme temperatures producing wines of a unique style within Central Otago.

Raymond Chan 18/20

Full, even, dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is refined with good volume of ripe, dark-red and black cherry fruit entwined with violet florals, unfolding some dark herb elements and suggestions of liquorice. This has intensity and excellent florality. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegantly proportioned with finely bound and youthfully taut flavours of dark-red cherry fruit lifted by dark-red and violet florals, along with subtle notes of dark herbs. The fruit forms an elegant core and is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction with balanced, soft acidity. The wine has good linearity and carries to a long, lingering finish of cherries and florals. This is an elegantly concentrated, refined Pinot Noir with dark-red and black cherry fruit, violet florals and herb notes on a finely extracted palate. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 5+ years. Fruit from the ‘Barrington’ vineyard fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 8 months in 20% new oak. 350 cases made. 18.0/20 May 2018
