Cotterell’s 1843 Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 26-Feb-2013
Marlborough fruit, given a cold soak and fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged in new and seasoned French oak barriques. Light ruby-red colour, lighter on edge, with some purple hues. This has a soft, but fresh and bright fruited bouquet of red berry fruits along with notes of raspberry liqueur, jam and peppery herbs. Medium-bodied, uncomplicated, juicy, raspberry fruit flavours gently fill the mouth with good weight and presence. The acidity is understated and the mouthfeel is softly rounded. The tannins are restrained initially, but build to support the fruit with good structure. The flavours recede to a light finish with lacy acidity. This is a soft, textured Pinot Noir with upfront raspberry fruitiness. Serve with poultry, pork and Asian cuisine over the next 3-4 years. 16.5+/20 Mar 2013 RRP $40.00
