Clos Henri Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Nov-2013
Fruit from 90% Broadbridge clay and 10% Greywacke riverbed soils, given a sold soak and fermented in large oak vats to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in 25% new French oak. Dark ruby-red colour with good depth and some garnet hues on edge. The nose is soft and ethereal with ripe red berry fruits and harmoniously entwined dried herb and oak detail, showing with good presence and building intensity. Medium-full bodied, well-concentrated and densely packed flavours of dark red berry fruits meld with soft earth, herb and toasty oak nuances. The palate features a fulsome structure from significant extraction, providing grainy, slightly dry textures and tannins. Moderate acidity adds to the fullness and weight and the chewy tannins carry the flavours to a moderately long, dry finish with toasty oak notes. This is a fulsome and well-structured Pinot Noir with ethereal red fruit flavours. Match with coq au vin and roasted pork or veal, over the next 5-7 years. 18.0-/20 Nov 2013 RRP $43.90
