Clos de Ste Anne ‘Naboth’s Vineyard’ Gisborne Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 07-Sep-2017
Light garnet-red colour with some depth, pale on edge with a hint of bricking. The nose is soft, gently full and voluminous with aromas of cherry and soft-red berryfruit, entwined with savoury strawberry and red floral notes, and nuances of herbs, fresh undergrowth, with complexing nuances of earth and smoke. The aromatics grow to show a soft density. Medium-full bodied, the palate has open and mouthfilling flavours of savoury strawberries with soft red floral notes, herbs and fresh undergrowth, and nuances of earth and smoke. The palate has supple tannin extraction providing balanced structure along with integrated acidity. The flavours flow with good energy, blossoming on the finish with strawberry, herb and floral notes. This is a softly mouthfilling Pinot Noir with savoury strawberry, herb, undergrowth and smoky flavours on a supple palate with a peacock’s tail finish. Match with mushroom dishes, and wild duck and pork over the next 5-6+ years. Hand-picked and sorted fruit from the older and newer plantings, destemmed, and fermented in cuves to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 28 days on skins and aged 14 months in 20% new French oak barriques. Certified BioGro organic and certified Demeter biodynamic. 18.5/20 Sep 2017 RRP $60.00
