Forrest Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Sep-2018
Deepish red colour with slight garnet hues, light on the rim. The bouquet is elegant in presentation with a concentrated and deep core of harmoniously integrated aromas of red berry fruits, dried herbs, subtle red floral notes and savoury secondary game and undergrowth elements with mushroom detail. Medium-bodied, the palate is finely presented with an elegant core of concentrated flavours of savoury red berry fruit with dried herbs, notes of game and undergrowth. The mouthfeel is rounded and the wine is smooth flowing with fine-grained tannins in support. This is becoming integrated and the flavours carry harmoniously to a gentle, lingering finish. This is an elegant Pinot Noir showing some harmonious integration and development of savoury secondary dried herb and undergrowth complexities. Serve with coq au vin and casseroles over the next 3+ years. Primarily clone 5 fruit with 777 and 667, 70% from the ‘Brancott’ vineyard, Southern Valleys and 30% from the ‘North Bank’, fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak barriques. 17.5/20 Sep 2018 RRP $30.00
