Boreham Wood ‘Single Vineyard’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Oct-2018
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with tight aromas of raspberry fruit entwined with subtle notes of herbs and oak spice. This is up-front and possesses a youthful vibrant graininess. Medium-full bodied, the palate has up-front, sweet primary flavours of dark raspberries entwined with dark herbs and subtle spicy, nutty oak. The mouthfeel is vigorous and fruity, quite uncomplicated with robust textures from the grainy tannins. The palate is enlivened by fresh acidity and the wine carries to an accessible, fruity finish. This is an up-front and uncomplicated Pinot Nor with youthful vigour, with flavours of dark raspberries, herbs and oak with grainy tannins and fresh acidity. Match with antipasto and tapas, and barbecued red meat dishes over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the Upper Wairau Valley, fermented to 13.4% alc., the wine given oak contact. 16.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $21.00
