Cambridge Road Animus Pinot Noir 2013

It’s some 40% whole bunch in the ferment, spends 22 months in oak (old). This is from the two hectare home block, set behind Ata Rangi’s ‘town block’.

Brutish, brooding scents, really dark cherry, cherry compote, meat drippings, fire pit, granite and undergrowth. Heady start. The palate floods the senses. It’s not overly powerful, but it does have stacks of dark, inky, moody fruit flavour drenched in spice, earth and dried herbs. It’s big pinot noir, but has lift and freshness too. Pretty epic.
