Fancrest Estate ‘Di’s’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2007

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 26-Oct-2011
The first crop from the ‘Fancrest' site, 90% destemmed without crushing and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in approx.. 60% new French oak barriques. Dark, very deep and full ruby-red colour with black hues, this has a solid, dense and full nose of ripe black berry and plum fruit with violetty perfumes and complex notes of spices, minerals and mushrooms. Medium-full bodied, this is a rich, dense and succulent wine with mouthfilling flavours of ripe black fruits and plums. The palate is plush with softening tannins, though still well-structured and grainy textured. The acidity is discreet, and a round, soft long and spicy finish completes the wine. Match with Middle Eastern red meat dishes over the next 4-5+ years. 120 case production. 18.0/20 Oct 2011 RRP $39.00
