Delta ‘Hatter’s Hill’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Sep-2016
Even, dark ruby-red colour, a little pale on edge. This has a full and voluminous nose with good depth and layered aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruits entwined with subtle notes of dark plums, dark herbs and complex whole bunch stalk and stem nuances, along with some undergrowth hints. The nose is soft, fulsome and dense. Medium-full bodied, this has rich and mouthfilling flavours of savoury dark-red berry and plum fruit intermixed with layers of dark herbs, earth, stalk and stem whole cluster complexities. The fruit sweetness is supported by soft, supple tannin extraction and the wine flows smoothly and seamlessly with underlying energy, carrying to a complex and detailed finish of savoury red fruits, herbs, earth and undergrowth. This is a softly rich and complex layered Pinot Noir with dark fruits, whole bunch stalk notes and a smooth flowing palate. Match with coq au vin and casseroles over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked Dijon clone fruit from the ‘Delta Farm’ vineyard, fermented with 13% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in 28% new French oak barrels. 18.5+/20 Sep 2016 RRP $34.00
