Anchorage ‘Reserve’ Nelson Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 06-May-2012
Even, light ruby-garnet colour with some depth. This has a bright, lifted nose of dark cherry fruit and tamarillos, unfolding violetty floral perfumes and oak spices. Medium-full bodied, concentrated flavours of dark cherry fruit, savoury tamarillos, herbs and oak form a juicy core. Lively acidity and supple tannins support the fruit, providing good tension through the length of the palate, the wine finishing with sustained oak spice notes. Distinctive sweet and savoury fruit flavours are the focus of this lively, balanced Pinot Noir. Serve with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean inspired cuisine over the next 4-5+ years. Fruit from two vineyards detstemmed, given a cold soak, and fermented with whole berries to 14.0% alc., the wine on skins around two weeks, then aged 16 months in predominantly French oak barriques. 17.0/20 May 2012 RRP $23.00
