Cielito Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Feb-2018
Moderately deep garnet-hued ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim with a little bricking. The bouquet is soft and gently voluminous with savoury secondary aromas of red berry fruits entwined with dried herbs, some undergrowth and mushroom detail, nuances of nutty oak and a touch of volatile lift. Medium-full bodied, the palate has harmoniously integrated flavours of red berry fruit melded with dried herbs and nutty oak. The fruit possesses richness and sweetness and is underlined by fine-grained flowery tannins lending a firm core and line. The acidity is balanced, and the wine carries to a tight, slightly narrowed, savoury finish showing secondary elements. This is a harmonious Pinot Noir with sweetly rich, savoury red berry fruit and secondary herbal flavours on a fine, firm-structured palate. Match with wild duck and pork, and with coq au vin over the next 4 years. Clones 777 and 5, the fruit from Blind River, Awatere Valley, destemmed and fermented to 13.9% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 3 y.o. French oak. 125 dozen made. 17.0+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $32.50 TBC
