Georges Road ‘Williams Hill’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 29-Jul-2014
Fullish, dark ruby-red colour with light purple hues on rim. This has a full and voluminous nose with aromas of red berry fruits and red florals entwined with an array of subtle dried herb, spice and earthy elements. Medium-full bodied, a complex amalgam of flavours of red berries, spices and earth, are supported by dry, grainy-textured and sinewy tannins that build to provide good, mouthfilling structure. The fruit is gently sweet to balance, with nutty oak notes emerging, and unfolds savoury herb layers which are carried to a long, dry, softly textural finish. This is a dry, textural and grainy structured Pinot Noir with savoury red berry fruit complexed by herb and earthy notes. Match with wild duck, pork and hare over the next 5-6 years. Clones 5, 115, 667 and 777 from the ‘Williams Hill’ vineyard, destemmed, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine on skins 42 days and aged 14 months in 25% new French oak. 150 dozen made. 17.5+/20 Jul 2014 RRP $32.50
