Cambridge Road Martinborough Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 27-Mar-2012
Bright ruby-red colour with garnet hues, lighter on rim. The nose has cooler spectrum aromatics of soft red fruits , red florals and herbs, quite fragrant and ethereal. Medium-bodied, soft red fruit flavours intermingle with dried herbs, some oak spice and red florals. This has some succulence, along with gentle, fine-grained tannin extraction, the palate with good balance and soft mouthfeel. A light, delicately perfumed finish completes the wine. Clone 5, Abel, 6, 13, 114, 115, 667 and 777, the third crop from ‘Cambridge Road Home' and fruit from 25 y.o. vines from ‘Regent Street' block, fermented with 3% whole bunch to 13.3% alc., with up to 24 days on skins. The wine was aged 12 months in 30% new French and European oak barrels. This is a soft, integrating Pinot Noir with ethereal fragrances of red fruits and herbs. Match with subtle Asian cuisine over the next 4-5+ years. 495 dozen made. 17.5-/20 Mar 2012 RRP $60.00
