Lone Goat Pinot Noir Burnham Christchurch 2012
Tasted at Christchurch Airport waiting for the plane to take me home.
Peppery and spicy on the nose. An odd bouquet. Funky at first but that blew off. Strong notes of green leaf/cut stalk mixed with perfumed pink roses
The palate shows lean and green quite tannic and edgey and acidic. The leafy component is quite unsettling. I see a lot of oxidation as the fruit dies in the glass. Pretty ghastly really.
