Greystone ‘Vineyard Ferment’ North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 05-Jun-2018
Even, light ruby-red colour, a little pale edged with a touch of garnet. The nose is softly full with gently packed aromas of ripe, soft-red berry fruits harmoniously interwoven with aromas of savoury dark and dried herbs, and earthy complexities, unfolding soft, piquant red floral elements. The aromatics show with finesse. Medium-full bodied, the palate has soft and ethereal flavours of red berry fruit harmoniously interwoven with subtle notes of dark herbs and red florals, along with gentle earthy complexity. This has delicacy and detail, the flavours building to form a rounded core with plenty of presence and substance. The fruit is supported by supple, fine-grained tannin structure with soft, integrated acidity. The flavours carry to a long and sustained finish. This is a harmonious red-fruited Pinot Noir with integrated complexing herb, floral and earthy detail on a supple palate with plenty of presence. Serve with wild duck and pork over the next 5-6 years.
