Auntsfield ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Mar-2015
Full, dark, moderately deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, youthful in appearance. The nose is full with softly presented and harmonious aromas of ripe dark raspberry and plum fruit, subtly lifted by layers of ethereal dark red florals and unveiling dark herbal nuances. Medium-full bodied, plush but gently expressed flavours of ripe raspberries and dark red plums fill the palate, The fruit is supported by fine-textured tannin structure and soft acidity lending a smooth flowing mouthfeel. Dark red florals and nuances of spicy oak emerge, leading to a sweet plush, well-packed finish with some length. This is a full, plush, smooth-flowing Pinot Noir with raspberry and plum flavours and fine textures. Match with pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 4-5 years. 50% clone 777, 30% Abel and 20% 667, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine spending 16-21 days on skins and aged 10 months in 25% new French oak. 18.0/20 Mar 2015 RRP $38.00
