Invivo Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Boom! Bold, vibrant black cherries, raspberries, subtle thyme, espresso toast all erupt from the glass! The nose compels you to taste, and you're not disappointed. Huge and expansive in the front palate, following through beautifully and seamlessly all the way to the very back of your senses, waves of sweet dark berries with a creamy, savoury baseline and a tight, fresh finish. We're very proud of this one.

Winemaking

2016 was a good and bold year for Central Otago. We saw concentration levels more akin with 2014 but with slightly firmer tannin structures so steps were taken to maximise the power but not at the expense of elegance. A really nice year that will be long lived and much enjoyed. One of the rare vintages that will impress both the judges and the public and will reward cellaring.
