Craft Farm ‘Crosby Vineyard’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 22-Dec-2018
Even, dark garnet-red colour with some depth, lighter on the edge. The nose is softly fresh with gently voluminous aromas of savoury dark raspberry fruit entwined with subtle notes of dark herbs and hints of whole bunch stalk perfumes. The nose is lively, and builds in depth with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant fruit flavours of savoury dark-red cherry and berry fruit along with subtle notes of dark herbs and some whole bunch stalk detail. The fruit richness is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, and underlined by fine-grained tannin extraction, providing an elegant mouthfeel and line. The wine carries to a refined, nuanced finish. This is a bright and lively Pinot Noir with savoury red cherry and berry fruit with subtle herb and stalk notes on a fresh palate with fine structure. Match with wild duck and pork over the next 5 years. Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Crosby’ vineyard, Martinborough, clones 10/5, Abel, 5 and 828, the 10/5 planted in 1986, hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented with 15% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in 50% new French oak. 1800 bottles made. 18.0/20 Dec 2018 RRP $47.99
