Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Oct-2018
Even, dark ruby-red colour with some light purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant and refined in expression with seamlessly interwoven aromas of dark-red berry fruits, and a little raspberry liqueur, melded with subtle notes of dark herbs and spices, unveiling red floral nuances. Medium-bodied, the palate is fine in presentation with flavours of dark red berry fruits, savoury raspberries with notes of dark herbs and spices with fragrant red florals. The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety with fine-grained tannin extraction, and subtle, integrated acid freshness. The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety in texture, with fine-grained tannin extraction and subtle, integrated acid freshness. The flavours show good linearity and carries to a sustained finish. This is an elegant and refined Pinot Noir with raspberries, herbs and spices on a smooth-flowing palate. Match with poultry and pork, lamb and beef over the next 5+ years. Fruit from a single site in the Upper Wairau Valley, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.2% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 15% new oak. 17.5/20 Oct 2018 RRP $28.00
