Clark Estate Clericus Wild Pinot Noir MMXVII 2017, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Dec-2020
Deep, ruby-red with a black hue, slightly opaque with transparency, lighter edged. The nose is fragrant with deep nuances of floral and dry herbs entwined with cherries, almost plummy, underlying integrated spices. Medium-full bodied, the palate is soothing with nuances of cherries and black plums, dried thyme and violet unveil as the wine opening; lifting notes of all-spice linger to a sustained finish. The palate is refined with silky tannin extractions, supported by lacy acidity. Good concentration of fruit and intensity form a tight core, filling mid-palate with weight and integration. This is a cherry-plum flavoured Pinot Noir with dried floral and thyme details, on a refined, supple tannin palate. Match with venison loin and lamb rump over the next 5-7 years. Selected parcels, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc, aged in oak. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 20202 RRP $65
