12,000 Miles Gladstone Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 13-May-2018
Deepish ruby-red colour, a little opaque, showing youthful purple hues, lighter on the edge. The nose is fresh, bright and vibrant with elegantly concentrated aromas of dark raspberry fruit along with subtle notes of dark herbs, unfolding a little raspberry liqueur and liquorice. Medium-bodied, the palate has an amalgam of dark-red cherry and raspberry with fresh herbs. The fruit is sweetly bright and aromatic, and enlivened by refreshing acidity, The fruit richness is supported by a fine line of tannin extraction providing structure and linearity. The wine carries with good energy to a long, lingering finish of raspberries and liquorice. This is a bright and lively Pinot Noir with flavours of red berry fruits, raspberries and liquorice on a fine-structured line with good energy and length. Serve with antipasto, poultry and pork, and lamb and beef over the next 4+ years. Dijon clones, 10/5 and Abel, from the ‘Dakins Road’ and ‘Carters’ blocks, destemmed and fermented with 5% as whole berries to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in oak. 18.0-/20 May 2018 RRP $27.00
