Delta Marlborough Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Jun-2011
Light ruby-garnet red in colour, with some depth, this is bright and lively on bouquet with raspberry and dark berry fruit aromas lifted with dark floral and herb notes. The nose is still tightly bound and shows intensity. The wine features a tight, well-structured palate with the flavours of sweetly ripe, dark cherry-berry fruits and raspberry liqueur framed in firm tannins on impact. The mid-palate becomes balanced and well-proportioned, with fresh acidity and supple tannin expression allowing the fruit to come through and carry to a sustained and nuanced finish. Dijon clone fruit from the ‘flats' of the ‘Delta Farm' with a portion from the ‘hills', 99% destemmed, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.2% alc., the wine then aged 10 months in 36% new French oak barrels. Serve with roast duck and Asian cuisine over the next 4-5+ years. 17.5+/20 Jun 2011 RRP $24.00
