Akaroa Winery Banks Peninsula Canterbury Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 06-Dec-2018
Even ruby-red colour with garnet hues, a little paler on the edge with hints of bricking. The nose is elegantly concentrated and firm with good depth of dark-red berry fruits harmoniously entwined with dark herbal notes, a little nutty oak, and a touch of minerally reduction. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly proportioned with a tightly bound core of restrained, savoury dark-red berry fruit along with dark and dried herbs, nutty oak and earthy elements, with a little minerally reductive bitterness. This is showing some savoury secondary development, but the palate has fruit sweetness that carries the wine along a fine-textured line with balanced acidity leading to a lively, savoury finish. This is a sweet and savoury dark-red fruited Pinot Noir with dark herb, nutty and earthy detail and a little reduction on a fine, taut palate. Serve with coq au vin over the next 3+ years. A multi-clone blend, vines planted in 1995, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine aged 7 months in 25% new oak. Certified AsureQuality organic. 16.5+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $40.00
