TerraVin ‘Eaton Family Vineyard' Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand – Marlborough
Review Date - 07-Apr-2012

19+/20

Bright, light ruby-red colour, the nose is intensely concentrated and penetrating with its red berry fruit and waves of perfumed florals, quite beautiful with delicacy and detail. Medium-bodied, this is elegantly proportioned, with a tightly bound richness and succulence that unfolds. Dark red berry fruits and a spectrum of florals with subtle oak spicing. The acidity provides excellent tension and energy for line and drive, leading to a long sweet and lusciously fine finish. This will evolve over the next 5-7 years.  19.0+/20  Apr 2012 
 
Brilliant light ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, this has a very fine, ethereal and near layered nose of red florals and violets with dark red berry fruits. The aromatics are subtle and show purity, and while a little shy, there is concentration showing. On palate this is lush with ripe, sweet, dark red berry fruit flavours, mouthfilling with a plumminess. The tannins are gentle, supple and very fine-grained, allowing the fruit to feature. This is beautifully fruity and almost fleshy, but possesses a stylish restraint that suggests more will emerge. The wine has a long, fruit nuanced finish. Dijon clones 667 and 777 from the north-west facing ‘Eaton' vineyard, fully destemmed and wild yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 month in French oak. Match with fine duck and pork dishes over the next 5-7+ years. 19.0-/20 Aug 2011 RRP $80.00
