Catalina Sounds Marlborough Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Mar-2012
Fruit from a single hillside site on clay-based soils in the Omaka Valley, fully destemmed and given a cold soak, fermented to 13.5% alc., a portion finishing in barrel, then aged 11 months in 30% new French oak barriques. Light garnet-red colour, some bricking on edge. This has a light, ethereal nose of strawberries, dried herbs and soft red florals, showing a good core with savoury mushroom elements with air time. Light-medium bodied, the palate shows light strawberry fruit, with dried herb, red florals, and earthy elements, enlivened by good acid freshness. The palate has soft, supple tannins and modest extraction, which allows the flavours of florals, red fruits and oak spices to linger. Enjoy this approachable and supple, lighter Pinot Noir with antipasto and tapas over the next 3-4 years. 16.5-/20 Mar 2012 RRP $27.00
