Centennial Vineyards 2019 Reserve Pinot Noir is made entirely from fruit grown here at the Bowral vineyards and tends to produce a delicate and perfumed style. Wild fermentation of our House block 115 clone together with whole bunch fermentation has added complexity to the primary red fruit.
It has a complex nose of spicy cherry, raspberry, herbs, ripe spices, and some interesting rich, sweet soil characters . The subtle supportive oak provides depth to the aroma. The palate is light bodied, soft and silky, with juicy cherry, beetroot and raspberry flavours, leading into a long and satisfying finish.
True to our vineyard it is elegant and finely detailed. The tannins could do with 3-6 months to harmonise further. Minimal filtration may result in a small deposit with time. Great with fuller flavoured dishes such as veal, chicken, duck. Drink now to 2025.
