2009 Chard Farm The Tiger, Central Otago, New Zealand

Chard Farm The Tiger Pinot Noir, Central Otago 2009Bright alluring ruby red with a pale meniscus. Sweet cherries, mandarin peel, leafy, tones of coconut aromas on the nose with a tiny touch of Brett; cranberries and plenty of tart red fruits on the palate; med+ acidity and med+ finish with a slightly spicy aftertaste. Firm muscular tannins.

I didn’t think I would drink it this soon but I guess I didn’t want to brave the snow and chilly wind to get more reds yesterday? đŸ˜‰ Thank God the sun is shining brightly this morning!
