Clos Henri Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Jan-2016
Even ruby-red colour, paler on edge. This has a firmly packed and deep bouquet with aromas of ripe dark red berry fruit that blooms in volume unfolding plum fruit, dark red florals, liquorice and spices, dark herb elements and some nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate is refined and rich with sweet flavours of dark red berry fruit and plums, entwined harmoniously with subtle spice, liquorice, herb and nutty elements. The wine is very fine-textured and smooth-flowing with integrated acidity, lending an elegant linearity. The flavours are carried to a refined, lingering, dry finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, rich-fruited and fine-textured Pinot Noir with flavours of dark berry fruit and subtle spice notes. Serve with lamb, beef and semi-hard cheeses over the next 5-6 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 10/5, 667, 777, 114, 115 and Abel, from 8-13 y.o. vines from ‘Broadbridge and ‘Wither’ clay soils in the Southern Valleys, fully destemmed and fermented with 100% whole uncrushed berries to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new French oak barrels. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0+/20 Jan 2015 RRP $43.90
