Flaxbourne South Island Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Feb-2013
Ruby-red colour with light purple hues on rim. The nose is softly full, even and fruity, quite up-front with aromas of dark red berry fruits, red florals and hints of savoury red herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate has light flavours of soft red fruits, showing a little sweetness with subtle fresh herb notes. The extraction is modest and acidity quite restrained, these providing a soft mouthfeel. Light and easy flavours of red fruits and florals are carried on the finish. This is a light and soft Pinot Noir to serve with tapas or antipasto over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from 8 blocks from the Awatere and Wairau valleys, including clones 777, 5, 114 and 115, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.5% alc., a portion of the wine aged in seasoned oak barrels. 15.5/20 Feb 2013 RRP $19.95
