Greenhough Nelson Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 27-Nov-2014
Even ruby-red colour with a little depth and light purple hues on rim. The nose is elegant with aromas of fresh raspberries and red cherry fruit infused with subtle herb and stalky nuances, unfolding violet and dark red floral notes. Medium-bodied, bright red cherry and berry fruit flavours are enlivened by racy, elevated acidity. Fresh herb elements add to the briskness on the palate and the wine follows a lightly extracted line of tannin. Savoury stalk and some resiny oak elements unfold and along with the cherry fruit are carried by the acidity to a light-textured, racy finish. This is a fresh cherry-fruited Pinot Noir with racy acid and light tannin structure. Serve with firm-fleshed seafood and poultry over the next 4-5 years. Clones 667, 777, 114, 115, 5, 22, and 10/5, from the ‘Greenhough’ and ‘Morison’ vineyards in Hope, and the ‘Barraud’ and ‘Hoddy Road’ sites in Moutere, the fruit hand-picked, mainly destemmed, given an ambient soak and fermented partially by indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc., the wine on skins 14-38 days total and aged 13 months in 30% new 500 L and 228 L French oak. 17.0/20 Nov 2014 RRP $27.00
