Big Sky Te Muna Road Martinborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 30-Oct-2016
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is full, broad and up-front with ripe fruit aromas of dark-red berry fruits along with black plum elements, and savoury dark herb and black-earth nuances, unfolding lifted red florals with aeration. Full-bodied, the palate features fulsome flavours of sweetly ripe dark-red berry fruit and subtle plum notes, entwined with savoury dark herbs and some earthy complexities. The mouthfeel is robust with good structure and grip providing textures, but allowing the fruit sweetness to prevail. This is juicy and luscious, with fresh acidity enlivening the fruit as it carries to the finish. This is a fulsome and robust, dark-red berry fruited Pinot Noir with plum, savoury herb and earthy interest on a well-textured palate with a lively mouthfeel. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 6+ years. 90% clone 115 and 10% 10/5 fruit from Te Muna Road, vines 15 y.o., hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented with 5% whole bunches to 13.8% alc, the wine 25-28 days on skins, spending 10 months in 15% new oak. 18.0+/20 Oct 2016 RRP $35.00
