Delta Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Sep-2016
Even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and bright with vibrant and intense aromas of dark red cherry and raspberry fruit, along with lifted dark-red and violet florals and a subtle amalgam of herbs and whole berry fermentation confectionary elements. Medium-bodied, the palate features rich, lively and elegantly concentrated flavours of dark raspberries and black cherry fruit melded with an amalgam of fresh herbs and violet florals. The palate is sweet and succulent, quite fine in expression with supple tannin extraction and flowing line, along with refreshing acidity. The wine carries with drive and energy to an elegant finish of dark cherry and berry fruit. This is an elegantly concentrated, sweet dark cherry and berry fruited Pinot Noir with supple tannins and fresh line and drive. Match with duck and pork dishes over the next 4 years. Dijon clone fruit from the ‘Delta Farm’ vineyard, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in seasoned French oak. 18.0/20 Sep 2016 RRP $24.00
