Folium ‘Reserve’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Jun-2014
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The bouquet is soft, refined and gently concentrated with aromas of ripe dark raspberry and black cherry fruit harmoniously integrated with notes of raspberry liqueur, black florals and spices. Funky game and earthy elements emerge with aeration. Medium-bodied, soft and plush fruit flavours of dark red berry and cherry fruit are melded with spice and earthy game notes. Some earthy nuances add complexity and interest. The palate has a concentrated core and the mouthfeel features fine-grained tannins that grow, with piquant acidity providing tension and freshness. The wine carries to a fine-textured, dry and elegant finish. This is a soft, gently luscious, fine-textured Pinot Noir with good freshness and dark fruit flavours with a little funky, earthy complexity. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 5-6 years. Hand-picked fruit destemmed, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.86% alc., the wine aged in 25% new French oak barrels. 133 cases made. 18.0/20 Jun 2014 RRP $40.00
