2017 Ceres The Artists Collection Inlet Vineyard Pinot Noir

Central Otago

New Zealand

Concentrated, savory, varietal, dark cherry and raspberry scents, mineral and toasty wood spices, complex and alluring. Equally focused and concentrated on the palate, great balanced between fruit, tannins, acidity and spices. There’s a firm youthful texture surrounded by berry fruit flavors that reflect the bouquet, a fine savory complexity and lengthy dry finish. Well made. generous and ready to drink from 2021 through 2027.

Winemaker's notes

Ceres flagship single vineyard Pinot Noir delivers complexity and concentration. Elegantly poised with brooding dark cherry, wild thyme, plum and licorice flavors. The Artists Collection is the pride of Ceres Wines, it’s about celebrating all those “Artists” involved in crafting these single site wines to reflect their place. Each bottle is adorned with the artwork of Odelle Morshus (James Dicey’s wife) to echo a shared philosophy of capturing a moment in time and space.
