Greenhough Nelson Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 22-Feb-2016
Clones 114, 667, 22, 5, 777, 115 and Abel from the ‘Hope’ and ‘Morison’ vineyards, vines 11-23 y.o., fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 34% new French oak. Moderately dark ruby-red colour with some depth, and light purple hues on edge. The nose is very fine and elegantly concentrated with pure and fragrant aromas of dark red berry and cherry fruit entwined with violet florals, unfolding suggestions of dark herbs an liquorice in the glass. Medium-bodied,the palate features a rounded, concentrated core of dark red cherry ad berry fruit melded with dark herbs and violet florals, along with nuances of liquorice. The fruit is supported by supple tannin extraction and balanced acidity enhancing the sweetness. Some alcoholic drive underlines the fruit, carrying it to a long, concentrated, dry finish with floral and liquorice notes. This is a finely concentrated Pinot Noir with a core of cherry and berry fruit lifted by violet florals. Match with poultry and pork, and Asian fare over the next 5 years. 18.0/20 Feb 2016 RRP $28.00
