Escarpment Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 05-Apr-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with slight purple hues and some depth, a little lighter on the rim. This has a full and deep nose packed with aromas of dark-red and black-berried fruits along with a complex amalgam of savoury dark herbs and whole bunch stalk notes, lifted with aromatic fruit and floral elements. This has excellent intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich, vibrant and well-concentrated flavours of ripe dark-red and black berried fruits along with dark herbs and balanced whole bunch stalk nuances. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively with excellent vitality, and the fruit underlined by fine-grained background tannin structure. This carries to a long, well-concentrated finish, revealing dark raspberry and floral elements. This is a rich, vibrant, sweet dark-red and black fruited Pinot Noir with a fresh mouthfeel and supporting structure, and subtle dark herb and whole bunch complexities. Match with poultry and pork, and roasted red meats over the next 6-7+ years. Multi-clone blend of fruit from Te Muna Road and Martinborough township, indigenous yeast fermented with 50% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 18 days on skins and aged 11 months in 30% new French oak barriques. 18.5+/20 Apr 2017 RRP $45.00
