Devotus ‘Reserve’ ‘Single Vineyard’ Martinborough Terrace Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 05-Sep-2015
Bright, vibrant ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on edge. This has a full, fragrant nose with bright and lifted, refined and pure aromas of cherry and dark red berry fruit. An array of perfumes, exotic florals and spices unfolds in the glass. Medium-full bodied and elegantly presented, succulently rich fruit flavours of dark cherries form a tight and well-concentrated core. The fruit is lifted by florals and whole berry fermentation aromatic detail, along with nuances of fragrant herbs and exotic spices. The palate is refined in tannin extraction and structure, and enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity lending vitality, freshness and tension to the mouthfeel and line. The flavours carry to a very long, lingering sweet-fruited finish with very fine textures. This is a beautifully elegant, refined, aromatic Pinot Noir with vibrant fruit, fine structure and palate freshness. Match with poultry, pork and fine Asian fare over the next 7-9+ years. Pommard clone fruit from 28 y.o. vines, hand-picked, given a cold soak and fermented with 15% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine on skins 12 days and aged 11 months in 25% new French oak barrels. 988 bottles made. 18.5+/20 Sep 2015 RRP $62.00
