Forrest Estate

Tatty Bogler Pinot Noir 2009

Tatty Bogler Pinot Noir 2009 - From Forrest Estate out of Otago South Island

Tasting Notes

June 2012
Tatty Bogler is the Forrest’s venture into the of the up and coming Otago region of the South Island’s far southern reaches. Tattay Boggler is the Scottish term for scarecrow and the Tatty Bogler label pays homage to the original Scottish settlers who came to southern extremes of the Otago region and braved the harsh environment to carve out a living from the land.
The 2009 Tatty Bogler Pinot Noir is a nice expression of the varietal from the Otago region, combining sweet cherry and plum fruit with earthy, lightly herbal tones that give complexity to the fruit. Notes of black cherry and red plums are underpinned with some spice and earthy, brambly notes and a subtle hint of wild thyme aromatically. The palate shows nice concentration and riper tannins giving a smoother textural feel to the lightly spiced cherry and plum fruit notes. Showing well now this should be enjoyed over the next couple of years.
