Christopher Reid Martinborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 20-Nov-2017
Even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple tints, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is firm with a well-concentrated and deep aromas of dark-red and black berried fruit along with subtle notes of savoury earth, and some herb and whole bunch nuances, complexed by nutty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated and rich palate of savoury dark-red and black fruits, with dark herbs, savoury earth and sweet, nutty oak. The palate is supported by fine, grainy tannin extraction and integrated acidity. The fruit richness is underlined by sweet and spicy oak which carries to a lingering finish. This is a rich Pinot Noir with sweet dark-red and black cherry and berry fruit with savoury herb and earth notes and nutty oak on a fine-grained palate. Match with poultry and pork, and game meat dishes over the next 5+ years. Fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 1 y.o. oak. 300 bottles made. 18.0/20 Nov 2017 RRP $45.00
