Cross Hares ‘Greenman’ Canterbury Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 27-Aug-2018
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full with aromas of red cherries and berries subtly entwined with fresh and dark herbs, unfolding a little spice. This has good depth and intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a concentrated core of red berry fruits melded with fresh herbs. The fruit has depth and penetration, and the mouthfeel is enlivened by elevated acidity. The wine carries along a grainy-textured line, and leads to a herb-nuanced, dry finish. This a Pinot Noir with cool-spectrum red berry and fresh herb flavours on a palate with grainy tannins and zesty acidity. Match with herb-marinated poultry and pork dishes over the next 3 years. Clones 115, 777 and 113 fruit from 15 y.o. vines, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 15 months in 2 y.o. oak barrels. 124 dozen made. 16.0/20 Aug 2018 RRP $23.00
