Askerne Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 10-Jul-2016
Light, even ruby-red colour, paler on the rime with a hint of purple. The nose is softly full with gentle and harmonious aromas of raspberry and cherry confectionary suggesting whole berry fermentation, along with subtle notes of dark herbs and red florals. The aromatics build in depth in the glass. Medium-bodied, the palate is softly concentrated with gentle flavours of raspberries and cherries with fruit bon-bon notes harmoniously integrated with red floral and dark herbal detail. This has a soft core with gentle and modest extraction lending a soft and rounded mouthfeel. There is goo palate presence and the wine carries to a light-fruited finish with confectionary elements. This is a softly concentrated, gentle Pinot Noir with raspberry and confectionary notes. Match with antipasto, pasta and Asian fare over the next 3+ years. Estate fruit, predominantly clones 115, 667 and 10/5, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new oak. 16.5/20 July RRP $22.00
