Borthwick Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 03-Dec-2013
Even ruby-red with light garnet hues on rim. The bouquet is soft and moderately intense with harmoniously entwined aromas of red berry fruits, warm earth and spicy oak notes providing interest and detail, building in depth in the glass. Medium-bodied, the palate is lively, vibrant and elegant with an amalgam of soft red fruit flavours, red florals, savoury dried herbs and subtle spices, just beginning to show some secondary complexities. The palate is sweet with some juiciness, supported by balanced, fine-grained, supple tannins which carry the sweet fruit flavours to a light, but long lingering finish. This is an elegant, light, soft-fruited and texturally refined Pinot Noir to serve with poultry and pork over the next 4-5+ years. Made from a blend of 12 clones, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.9% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 30% new French oak. 17.5+/20 Dec 2013 RRP $37.95
