Angela Stone Nelson Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 13-Jul-2014
Moderately deep, garnet-hued ruby-red colour, lighter on rim. The bouquet is elegant with ripe, spicy, dark berry fruit and plum aromas, revealing a hint of whole berry fermentation confectionary and jam, and complexing savoury dark herbal nuances. Red florals and a little volatility add lift to the nose, and the aromatics build in depth and intensity in the glass. Medium-bodied, tightly bound and slender fruit flavours of aromatic and lifted red berry fruits show with sweetness and are enlivened by crisp, lacy acidity. The mouthfeel is vibrant, and features a fine-grained, elegantly extracted core that has drive and line. The wine is textural, with the fruit supportive, and carries to a long, sustained, sweetly nuanced finish. This is an elegant, tight and fine-textured Pinot Noir with an aromatic lift. Serve with poultry, pork, rabbit and veal over the next 4+ years. Estate fruit, with 7 clones of Pinot Noir, fermented to 14.4% alc., the wine aged 11 months in French oak barrels. 17.0+/20 Jul 2014 RRP $37.00
