Brightwater Gravels Nelson Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 07-Aug-2018
Moderately dark and deep ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly fresh with aromas of red cherry and berry fruit along with a fine, integrated thread of fresh herbs and lifted dark-red florals. The aromatics are harmoniously presented. Medium-bodied, the palate has a sweetly rich core of dark-red cherry and berry fruit along with subtle notes of fresh herbs and a little red floral lift, unfolding notes of liquorice and spice. The fruit is underlined by supple, light tannin extraction providing fine textures and linearity, with balanced, lacy acidity lending energy. The wine carries smoothly to an elegant finish. This is an elegant, sweetly rich Pinot Noir with red cherry and berry fruit with herb and floral nuances on a supple palate. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 3+ years. Fruit fully destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged in tank and a smaller portion in French oak hogsheads, 10% new equivalence. 17.0/20 Aug 2018 RRP $22.00
