Dry River Martinborough Pinot Noir 2007

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 02-Oct-2015
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with garnet hues on the rim. The bouquet is powerful and concentrated with deep, black berried fruits along with layers of minerals and smoke, unfolding layers of herbs and stalk that show alongside the ripe components. Full-bodied and fulsome, this is a well structured and sizeable wine on palate. The mouthfeel is beginning to round out, and adds to the bold, up-front fruitiness. Black and savoury dark red berry fruits are entwined with savoury herb and stalk notes, and the flavours slowly recede as the wine flow to the finish. Some acidity emerges highlighting the stalky aspects. I believe the small vintage that produced a high skin to juice ratio, has the greener elements from uneven ripening eventually come out after several years, as is the case here. 18.0/20 Sept 2015 RRP $N/A
