Escarpment Martinborough Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Feb-2011
Dark, deep, full, purple-hued ruby-red in colour, this has a fulsome, plump bouquet of dark plums and cherries with raspberries and herbs. The fruit aromatics are up-front and vibrant. On palate, this possesses succulent dark plum and berry fruit flavours at the core, with significant tannins that show good suppleness. The extraction forms a fine, but firm grip supporting the fruit, and provides a long, dry finish. A rich, well-fruited, approachable wine with a sufficiently serious structure that will enable 5-7+ years of cellaring. Martinborough region fruit, approx.. 70% Abel clone from the ‘Te Muna Road' vineyard fermented with 15% whole bunch to 14.3% alc. Aged 11 months in 30% new French oak barriques. 18.5-/20 Feb 2011 RRP $46.00
