Folium Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Apr-2016
Dark ruby-red colour with some depth, and a little lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is well-concentrated and densely packed with aromas of dark raspberry and red berry fruits entwined with dark herbs, unfolding some earthy and mineral reductive detail. Medium-full bodied, the flavours of dark-red berryfruit, raspberries and dark herbs are somewhat restrained, with the unfolding of the mineral detail. The mouthfeel has good body and presence with soft, supple tannins and integrated acidity underlining the fruit. The wine grows in breadth as it flows to a long, fine, dry-textured finish. The dark red berry, herb and minerally flavours of this Pinot Noir are a little restrained, but it has plenty of mouthfeel and presence. Serve with lamb, beef and game meat over the next 5+ years. Fruit from 1.2 ha, vines planted 2003, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.4% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 25% new French oak. 417.5 dozen made. 17.5-/20 Apr 2016 RRP $31.00
