Decibel Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 23-Oct-2016
Light, even ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on rim. The nose is soft, light and delicately fragrant with aromas of red cherry fruit and subtle, harmoniously interwoven notes of fresh herbs, unfolding red florals and some red liquorice. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses fresh, juicy and luscious flavours of red cherry fruit with subtle nuances of savoury herb and earthy elements, unfolding red floral notes. The fruit is supported by fine-grained, powdery, dry tannin extraction which builds in presence, and the palate is balanced by fresh, lacy acidity lending energu and vibrancy. This has a light, but positive core and sinewy line that carries to a firm, brisk finish of red cherry fruit and herbs. This is a light cherry and herb flavoured Pinot Noir with sweetness and richness and some earthy, herbal detail, a fine-grained sinewy extraction and line and fresh mouthfeel. Serve with tapas, poultry and pork over the next 4 years. Clones 667, 777 and some Abel, from ‘Dodd’s’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented with 10% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in seasoned French oak barriques. 17.0/20 Oct 2016 RRP $40.00
