Carrick Central Otago Excelsior Pinot Noir 2007
95 points, 5 stars - Bob Campbell MW, Bob's Wine Reviews.com July 2010.
Carrick makes this flagship Pinot Noir from grapes harvested in their Bannockburn vineyard in exceptional vintages. Super-dense Pinot Noir from the excellent 2007 vintage. Rich and powerful wine with plum/prune, chocolate, dark cherry and Oriental spice flavours. The wine has a sumptuous, velvety texture that is totally seductive. It improved dramatically in the glass - an indication of cellaring potential. - 95 points, 5 stars - Bob Campbell MW, Bob's Wine Reviews.com July 2010.
