Cherry block is a collaboration project between a top Otago producer and the team at Antipodean Sommelier. We have created a Central Otago Pinot that showcases the typical characters that have made Central Otago famous in the world of wine. The extreme continental climate of Central Otago is one of fiercely cold nights and long, warm summer days. It is these intense conditions combined with the lush surrounding cherry orchards that serve to create the vivid, rich and spicy nature of Cherry Block Pinot Noir.
This fragrant and spicy Central Otago Pinot Noir has vivid aromas of black cherry fruit on the bouquet with herbal undertones. The palate is mineral driven with fine spiciness underpinned by sweet fruit on the finish.
