Corofin ‘Cowley Family Vineyard – Main Slopes’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Feb-2016
Even ruby-red colour, a little lighter edged. This has an elegant, softly fragrant nose of red cherry and berry fruit with subtle herb and red floral aromas. This possesses finesse and is expressed with refinement, unfolding nuances of herbs, liquorice and dark red fruits with aeration. The whole cluster component is integrated and harmonious. Medium-bodied, juicy and succulent aromatic red floral and red berry fruit flavours show with ethereal floral lift. The fruit is supported by subtle tannin extract and structure, lending fine-grained textures, and the acidity is balanced, providing freshness and tension. The wine carries with fine drive and linearity carrying through to a delicate, aromatic, but sweetly rich, lingering finish. This is a refined, aromatic red fruited Pinot Noir with floral lift and a balanced, fresh mouthfeel. Serve with firm-fleshed seafood and poultry over the next 5 years. Dijon fruit from the ‘Cowley Family’ vineyard, Ben Morven, indigenous yeast fermented with 40% whole clusters and ‘mini’ pump-overs but no punch-down to 13.0% alc., the wine on skins 23 days aged 14 months in 2-5 y.o. French oak. 18.5-/20 Feb 2016 RRP $48.00
