Forager Waipara Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 15-Jun-2015
Full, dark, deep black-hued ruby-red colour with slight purple on the edge. The nose is full with softly concentrated aromas of ripe, dark red berry and plum fruits layered with subtle and harmoniously interwoven nuances of dried herbs, earth and minerals, revealing dark red and violet florals with aeration. The deep core unfolds an array of complexing, savoury aromatic detail. Medium-full bodied, plush and vibrantly rich and succulent fruit flavours of ripe dark red berryfruit and plums fill the palate, unfolding waves of subtle dried herb, earth, and nuances of undergrowth, along with red florals and violets. The fruit is supported by fine-grained tannins providing an underlying firm line, and bright, discreet acidity lends energy and vitality. The wine flows seamlessly to a very long, nuanced, lingering finish. This is a beautifully rich and lusciously succulent Pinot Noir with waves of complexing savoury detail. Serve with wild duck and pork, mushroom-influenced dishes and coq au vin over the next 6-8 years. Fruit from the Omihi sub-region, fully destemmed, and indigenous yeast fermented in the ‘Greystone’ vineyard to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 30 days on skins and aged 17 months in 1 y.o. French oak. 45 cases made. 19.5-/20 Jun 2015 RRP $65.00
