Auntsfield Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 09-Jun-2020
Dark, purple with a ruby-red hue with some depth, youthful, even colour throughout. The nose is with spice and power, shining through with plush plums and black cherries entwined with herbs and nutty oak. The palate is full and bright with lively acidity, carries plummy and cherry aromas; unfolding herbs and subtle sweet spices, along with nutty oak notes. Medium-bodied with fullness, the mouthfeel is buoyant with the right amount of acidity, interweaved with silken fine-grained tannin extraction. The fruit is ripened and plush and has the density to uphold the firm tannin structure, and leaves a silky, dry, structured finish. This is a sumptuous, medium-bodied Pinot Noir with ripened fruit flavours of plums and cherries, along with herbs and spices upholding a silken fine-grained tannin structure and a nutty finish. Match with venison and duck over the next 5 years. Handpicked, destemmed, fermented to 13.5% alc in tanks. Aged in French oak barriques for 10 months. 18.5/20pts June 2020 RRP $45
