A 4-star ripper with easy-drinking charm
Lil Rippa Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018
Smooth, silky, red berry
The super-warm 2018 vintage has delivered beautifully sun-ripened wines and this is a great example. Aromas of red and black fruit, Central Otago's distinctive dried thyme and a lovely forest-floor character lead to a soft, delicious palate with dried-herb notes and great length of flavour.
"A charming pinot; the fragrant bouquet shows sweet cherry, strawberry, mixed spice and subtle earthy mushroom characters, followed by a juicy palate that is smooth and flowing. Mellow and supple with attractive fruit flavours". Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
