Caythorpe Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Sep-2018
Even, purple hued ruby-red colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly proportioned with fresh, firm aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit forming a tight, finely concentrated core entwined with subtle notes of dark herbs and a suggestion of earth, unfolding some red liquorice and red floral notes. Medium-full bodied, the fruit flavours are elegant in presentation with vibrant flavours of red cherry fruit entwined with red florals and a subtle layer of fresh and dark herbs. The flavours form a slender, but concentrated heart, and the fruit is supported by light, grainy tannins with fresh acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. The wine is bright and energetic and carries to a fresh finish. This is an elegant, slender, refreshing Pinot Noir with red cherry fruit along with florals and herbs on a palate with some grip and brisk acidity. Serve with salmon and tuna, and with antipasto over the next 3 years. Clone 115 fruit from the ‘Caythorpe’ vineyard, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 21 days on skis and aged 11 months in 25% new French oak. 17.0/20 Sep 2018 RRP $24.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
