Cambridge Road Martinborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 27-Mar-2012
Clone 5, Abel, 6, 13, 114, 115, 667 and 777, from 48% ‘Cambridge Road Home' and 52% ‘Regent Street' sites, fermented with 18% whole bunch to 14.7% alc., with up to 26 days on skins. The wine was aged 11 months in 30% new French and European oak barrels. Full, even, very dark purple-ruby red colour, youthful in appearance. This is full and voluminous with savoury dark red berry fruit, with notes of game, rich with complex interwoven elements, very Martinborough in expression. Medium-full bodied, this has attractively bright, rich and luscious fruit flavours of dark berry and cherry fruit with excellent acidity providing tension and drive. Some resiny oak nuances sit with savoury cooked fruits, game and florals. Very fine-textured tannins underline the palate and with the acidity carry through to a very long finish. This complex flavoured Pinot Noir has the tension and fine extraction to match duck, pork and veal dishes over the next 6-7+ years. 300 dozen made. 18.5-/20 Mar 2012 RRP $60.00
