Vintage: 2012
 
Your Wine Guy says:
 
A complex nose showing layers of black cherry, cinnamon and cedar.  The palate is spicy with vibrant red cherries supporting the denser more concentrated dark fruits. The weighty structure provides a solid backbone to the wine which follows through to a long cassis and cocoa finish. Wickedly easy to drink and full of flavour.

Critics say:
 
"More oak weighs in here, quite assertive, sitting across ripe plum fruits and earthy complexity. The palate’s rich and sturdy, quite solid and fleshy with dark cherry and juicy cola-like flavour. Oak adds a chewy edge to the finish. Best given some time."

The winemaker says:
Nose: Chocolate, dark red cherry and layers of rich oak spice form the complex aroma of this wine.
Palate: The palate is texturally driven with a richness and a density of flavour that shows sweet succulent fruit and exotic spice, all of which is supported and carried by good phenolic weight. The 2012 Bannockburn Pinot noir is mouth-filling, complete, and harmonious with a long, vibrant finish. - Carrick Wines 
 
Winery Information:
 
Carrick, a small winery situated around the corner from Felton Road, incorporates a cellar door and restaurant that overlooks the spectacular Bannockburn Inlet. It’s a beautiful place to visit with some great wines and very helpful and friendly staff (great food too if you’re lucky enough to make the trip to the cellar door and eat at the restaurant).
Carrick’s owner Steve Green has long been an avid ambassador of the outstanding quality of wines able to be produced from vines in the Central Otago region since the very early 90’s. Steve is on the Board of Wine New Zealand, and has been both the chairperson of Central Otago Pinot Noir Limited and also the President of the Central Otago Winegrowers Association.
Favourites here are Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnays (the Rosé was great too, but sadly not enough of the Rosé is produced to be imported into Australia).
