Auntsfield ‘Single Vineyard’ Southern Valleys Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Oct-2018
Very full, dark purple-hued ruby-red colour, youthful in expression. This has a firmly packed and deep nose of vibrant and bright dark-red berry and plum-fruit subtly entwined with a core of dark herbs, unfolding hints of liquorice and spice. Medium-full bodied, the palate has sweetly rich flavours of ripe dark-red and black-berried fruits harmoniously melded with plum notes. The fruit is plush and mouthfilling, and is supported by fine-grained, supple tannin extraction and grip. The acidity is soft and balanced. Notes of liquorice and herbs, along with spice unfold, as the wine carries to a soft, flavoursome finish. This is a sweetly rich dark-red and black berried and plummy Pinot Noir with spice and herb notes on a plush palate with supple structure. Match with duck and pork, or lamb and beef over the next 4+ years. Pinot Noir fruit hand-picked, destemmed and fermented partially by indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 28% new French oak barriques. 18.0+/20 Oct 2018 RRP $45.00
