Dr Renwick Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Aug-2013
Pinot Noir fruit fully destemmed, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged a total of 17 months in seasoned French oak barrels. Full, even, dark ruby-red colour, lighter on rim. The bouquet is softly concentrated and fulsome with deep aromas of ripe, dark red berry fruits with notes of red liquorice, raspberry liqueur, earthy herbs and red floral elements. Medium-full bodied, robust, up-front, juicy, fruit flavours of raspberries, savoury herbs, liquorice and earth fill the mouth. The fruit is encased by plenty of sinewy tannins, providing a generous texture and grip. The structure features on the palate, leading to a lightly nuanced, but long, gentle, grainy finish. This is a fresh, robust and up-front Pinot Noir with good grip. Serve with Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 4+ years. 17.0+/20 Aug 2013 RRP $17.00
