Product Description

Bacchus has received requests for the next varietal selection, and happily, can grant one of those requests today.

 

The 2014 Carrick Unravelled Pinot Noir from Central Otago, New Zealand occupies a unique line in the Pinot Noir universe, and as it appears, Pinot Noir is also a Bacchus follower favorite.

 

Being from New Zealand, especially Central Otego – sort of the Burgundy of the New World, you can expect a bright, minerally, aromatic wine that is subtle in many ways – but intensely gratifying.

 

The Unravelled steps deeper into the Pinot world and exhibits much more of that dark red cherry fruit and herbs – closer to American rather than French.

 

As we have not sampled previous vintages of Unravelled, we will defer to a comparison of past vintages to the winemaker. His take is that the 2014 was more aromatic and spicier than past vintages. And, because of the density of the fruit, it would be at least 4 to 8 years before it was truly balanced enough to drink.

 

Lucky for us, we are at the beginning of the drinking window. And if you buy more, can cellar some for next season as well.

 

Carrick Bend, or Sailor’s Knot, represents the wine region in Central Otego – and this wine, is, of course, the unraveling of the knot to release the goodness in the grapes.

 

With Thanksgiving (gasp!) just a few short weeks away, you will want to grab hold of as many Pinot Noir bargains as possible, because they tend to dry up in the fall.

 

A little mid-September gift from Bacchus.
