Aronui ‘Adam’s Block’ Nelson Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 10-Nov-2015
Even ruby-red colour, lighter edged. The bouquet is soft and light with gently presented savoury red berry fruits along with subtle secondary undergrowth, dried herb and nutty aromas, unfolding game and cedary elements in the glass. Medium-bodied, light flavours of soft red berry fruits are entwined with dried herb and earthy layers. Undergrowth and cedar elements are harmoniously melded and show openly. The fruit is supported by light, dry tannin extraction and soft acidity, lending a mellow mouthfeel. The flavours lead to a dry, savoury finish of dried herbs and game. This is a soft, dry and light, red fruited Pinot Noir with harmonious secondary development flavours of dried herbs, earth and game. Match with charcuterie, antipasto and poultry over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the ‘Whenua Matua’ vineyard, Upper Moutere, hand-picked, destemmed, given a cold soak, and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in new and seasoned French oak barriques. 16.0+/20 Nov 2015 RRP $27.95
