Haha Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Feb-2015
Bright, even, ruby-red colour with some depth, and lighter purple hues on edge. The nose is fresh, primary-fruited and uncomplicated with aromas of raspberry fruit, red liquorice and fruit pastille confectionary suggesting whole berry fermentation. Some liquorice and herb nuances emerge with aeration. Medium-bodied, bright, plush, sweet fruit flavours of ripe raspberries and red cherry fruit are the feature on palate. Whole berry fermentation lift and confectionary notes add brightness to the primary fruit expression. The fruit is supported by supple, fine grainy tannin structure with discreet acidity adding to the juiciness and energy. The wine flows to a plush, succulent, aromatic finish. This is an up-front, juicy, primary-fruited Pinot Noir with flavours of ripe raspberries and a supple mouthfeel. Match with antipasto, pasta and poultry over the next 3+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the Awatere and Upper Wairau Valleys, fermented to 13.5% alc., 45% of the wine aged 8 months in French oak barrels. 17.0/20 Feb 2015 RRP $19.99
