4.5 Stars - Michael Cooper
"A regional classic. Certified organic, the 2018 vintage is from the hottest growing season on record. A powerful young red, it was hand-picked from estate-grown, 25 year-old vines and matured for nine months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new). Bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, sweet-fruited and supple, with well-ripened cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing good complexity, balanced acidity and a very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2023+."

Carricks' estate Pinot Noir is always a treat and always consistent.

Winery description
"The Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir is known for its structure and its ability to age well over a long period of time. The 2018 growing season had the hottest growing season on record, with rain just before harvest, it was incredibly unusual and picking began two weeks earlier than normal. The fruit came in looked good and the resulting wines are generous and impressive. This wine is an integral part of what we do and a wine that we feel represents the strong connection we have with our land. The fruit comes from a parcel of vines which are entirely grown on their own roots and are the oldest vines we have on the property. Now 25 years old."

Classic Central Otago Pinot Noir, with good structure, earthy tones alongside red fruit and great balance. Classic, well-balanced, generous.
