Brancott Estate ‘Terroir Series’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Feb-2015
Even ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on edge. Fresh, light aromas of soft red berry fruits are intermixed with cooler spectrum fennel herb aromas, the nose revealing some whole berry fermentation confectionary elements with aeration. Medium-bodied, light fruit flavours of savoury red berry and cherry fruit are entwined with herb and stalk elements. The fruit is underlined by sinewy tannins that provide good presence and vinosity. The mouthfeel is fresh and zesty with plenty of acidity that carries the wine to a grainy, dry finish. This is a light-fruited Pinot Noir with savoury and herb-laced fruit, elevated acidity and grainy textures. Match with antipasto, tapas and poultry over the next 3+ years. Predominantly clone 5 and 777 with some Abel, from the Awatere Valley, destemmed and given a cold soak, and mainly indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in barrel. 16.5/20 Feb 2015 RRP $19.95
