Brancott Estate ‘Letter Series – T’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Sep-2016
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly concentrated with aromas of ripe dark-red berry fruit, black berries and black cherries, with herb notes along with subtle reductive complexing detail. Medium-full bodied, the palate possesses bright and sweet fruit flavours of dark raspberries and bitter cherries, along with notes of dark herbs and minerally reductive elements. The mouthfeel is rich with vibrantly sweet fruit enlivened by fresh acidity, and supported by supple tannin extraction. The flavours lead with good energy to a finely concentrated, lingering finish of dark-red berry, red liquorice and herb flavours. This is a sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with dark raspberry and bitter black cherry notes, and a fresh, supple mouthfeel, showing hints of minerally reduction. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 5 years. Primarily a blend of clones 777 and 5 from the ‘Brancott’ vineyard, 40% of the fruit hand-picked, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.1% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 25% new French oak. 17.5/20 Sep 2016 RRP $26.49
