Bel Echo by Clos Henri ‘Terroir – River Stones’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Jan-2017
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with purple hues, a little lighter on the rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is very fresh, bright and vibrant with up-front, aromatic dark raspberry fruit aromas, harmoniously melded with dark-red plum and dark herb, notes forming a soft, but concentrated core. Violet floral, liquorice and spice nuances unfold with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate features stylishly sweet, succulent fruit flavours of raspberries and plums enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity. The wine flows smoothly along a fine-textured line with satin-like tannins in support. Flavours of spice and liquorice emerge and carry to a long, juicy finish. This is a bright, vibrant and succulent dark raspberry and plum fruited Pinot Noir with smooth, fine tannins and fresh acidity. Match with poultry and pork over the next 5 years. Clones 10/5, 114 and 115 from ‘Greywacke’ riverstone soils, from vines 8-13 y.o., fermented in large oak vats to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 40% in vats and 60% in seasoned French oak barrels. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0/20 Jan 2017 RRP $33.00
