Allan Scott Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Aug-2016
Light, even, ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, pale edged. The nose is full, up-front and blossoms in volume with fresh aromas of raspberry fruit and fragrant red florals, red liquorice, dark herbs and whole berry fermentation confectionary elements. This is bright and primary in expression, and quite accessible. Medium-bodied, the palate features lively and juicy, sweet fruit flavours of raspberries and whole berry fermentation confectionary. Red floral and red liquorice elements show. The fruit is fresh and primary and enlivened by crisp acidity, with light, grainy tannin structure in support. The mouthfeel has plenty of energy and grip and carries to a juicy, brisk and sinewy-textured finish of raspberries. This is a youthfully bright and juicy, raspberryish Pinot Noir with confectionary lift, brisk acidity and grainy tannins. Match with tapas and antipasto, and with poultry over the next 4 years. Omaka fruit almost totally destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 20% new oak hogsheads. 17.0/20 Aug 2016 RRP $26.00
