Bel Echo ‘Terroir – Greywacke’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Feb-2011
Bright, darkish ruby red colour with some purple hues, this has an intense and tight cherry-berry nose that shows attractively perfumed floral aromatics with mineral elements. The palate exhibits succulently sweet dark berry and floral flavours, the fruit still youthfully fresh. Firm, but fine-grained tannins are evident and feature on the long, dry finish. This shows lovely perfumes, no doubt reflecting the Greywacke terroir. Drink with roast duck and mildly spiced Asian dishes over the next 4-6 years. Fruit from 65% Greywacke gravel and 35% Broadbridge clay soils fermented in stainless-steel vats to 13.5% alc., with 37% of the wine aged in French oak, of which 9% was new. 18.0+/20 Jan 2011 RRP $30.00
