Rossendale Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

18 July,2017
Brent and Shirley Rawstron operate Rossendale wines from their base in Halswell, Christchurch, where they have a function centre and 6.0 ha of vineyard. However the bulk of their business is from their 35 ha of vineyards in Rapaura, Marlborough, where good value varietal wine is grown, and made at the Spring Creek contact facility. Most of the wines are exported, though the wines have a domestic presence. www.rossendale.co.nz

Rossendale Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand – Marlborough

15.5-/20
Light ruby-red colour with some purple hues, paler on edge. The nose is fresh with moderately deep aromas of raspberry fruit melded with layers of fresh and dark herbs, along with a note of mineral reduction and hints of nutty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate has a core of softly concentrated flavours of raspberry fruit harmoniously entwined with dark and fresh herbs, revealing a little reduction and bitter suggestions. The fruit is supported by light grainy tannins and some underlying acidity, and carries to a light, soft-textured, dry finish with minerally reduction hints. This is a moderately concentrated Pinot Noir with soft flavours of raspberries and herbs and a light, textural grip. Match with poultry, pork, antipasto and Mediterranean fare over the next 2+ years. Made from Marlborough fruit with a small portion of Canterbury fruit included, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine given oak contact. 15.5-/20 Jul 2017 RRP $16.00
