Ara ‘Select Block M36’ ‘Limited Release’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-May-2014
From Block ‘M36’, with clone 5, the ‘Pommard’ clone producing bright, up-front strawberry and raspberry fruit, sometimes with savoury smoky notes, the wine a good blending base. Moderately dark ruby-red colour with good depth. The nose is bright-fruited with attractively lifted perfumes and fragrant red berry fruits, along with florals, pepper and herbs, unfold toasty elements with aeration. Sweet, juicy, fresh and accessible on palate, with bright and lifted fruit flavours, the mouthfeel is lively from slippery, racy acidity providing excellent tension and energy. The tannins are very fine-grained and are in balance with the proportion and degree of extract. Long on the finish. 18.5/20  May 2014 RRP $52.00
