Anchorage Nelson Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 11-Jan-2014
Dijon clone fruit given a cold soak and fermented to 12.0% alc., the wine aged 4 months in oak of various size and aged formats. Ruby-red colour with some purple hues and depth, youthful in appearance. This has light aromas of red berry fruit and redcurrants, with underlying dark herb and peppery nuances, revealing some lifted whole berry fermentation confectionary elements. Light-bodied, the palate has good presence and a soft fruit core of red berry fruit and aromatic confectionary notes. Some cooler spectrum herb and curranty flavours are integral. The mouthfeel is marked by elevated acidity, alongside gentle extraction, providing structure, which carries the wine to a soft-textured, slippery finish. This is a harmoniously flavoured, rounded, slippery Pinot Noir with redcurrant fruitiness. Match with salmon and tuna, antipasto and poultry over the next 2-3 years. 700 cases made. 15.5+/20 Jan 2014 RRP $20.99
