Escarpment ‘Pahi’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Feb-2011
Bright, deepish, ruby hued purple-red in colour, this has a beautifully aromatic and fragrant nose of red and dark fruits that unfold with floral perfumes, violets and damson fruits. There has intensity and finesse on bouquet. On palate, this has genuine elegance, with a succulent core of sweet red and dark berry fruits along with delicate floral notes to the flavours. The extraction is fine and silken textures are a feature. Very fine acidity keeps the palate focussed and with tension. Made from 10/5 clone from 28 y.o. vines from the ‘McCreanor' vineyard on Princess Street. Fermented with 30% whole bunch to 13.9% alc., then aged 12 months in 30% new French oak barriques. A wine of sheer aromatic beauty. Drink with salmon, tuna and lighter Asian poultry dishes over 6-8+ years. 19.5-/20 Feb 2011 RRP $65.00
