Delta Hatters Hill Pinot Noir 2018, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Jun-2020
Bright, light ruby-red with some depth, lighter on edge. The bouquet is fragranced with depth, exhibiting fresh red berries, red cherries, an amalgam of spices lifted with floral, along with savoury earth and gamey notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh with well-defined layers of aromas, red berries and cherries with a deep fragranced floral scent; along with aromatic oak spices underlying earth and gamey notes. The mouthfeel is soft and delicate; lacy acidity interweaved with a fine line of grainy tannin extraction, leaves a silky sustained finish. This is a pretty, delicate Pinot Noir with flavours of red fruit and floral complexity, along with spices, earthy and gamey elements flow with silky tannin and lacy acidity. Match with crispy duck and gamefowl over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from Wairau Valley, 115 Dijon clone, 10% whole bunches, fermented to 13.5% alc. Aged in Frech oak barriques for 10 months, 30% new. 18.5+/20pts June 2020 RRP $34
