Clos Henri Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Jan-2017
Even, dark ruby-red colour, lighter on the edge with slight purple hues. The bouquet is firm and tightly bound with restrained aromas of savoury red berry fruits, and complexing dried herbs and nutty oak forming a tight core. Medium-full bodied, the palate is fine in presentation with harmonious and integrated flavours of dark red berry fruits interwoven with subtle notes of dark herbs and nutty oak. The fruit is rich and builds in depth, revealing complex dried herb and earthy interest. The wine has depth and concentration, with fine-grained structure and supple, velvety tannins. The acidity is balanced and some alcohol drive carries the wine to a long, elegant finish. This is an elegantly concentrated and fine-grained Pinot Noir with a complex savoury bouquet and sweetly rich, concentrated mouthfeel. Serve with coq u vin and game meat dishes over the next 5-6 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 10/5, 667, 777, 114, 115 and Abel from ‘Broadbridge and ‘Wither’ clay soils, vines 8-13 y.o., fully destemmed and fermented with whole berries to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new French oak barrels. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0+/20 Jan 2017 RRP $44.00
