Harwood Hall Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 21-Jun-2016
Moderately deep red colour with garnet hues and some bricking on the rim. The nose is soft, light and uncomplicated with gentle aromas of savoury red berry fruits along with nuances of dried herbs and subtle red floral lift building to form a rounded core. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses light, up-front savoury red berry fruit flavours with nuances of dried herbs lending a thread of bitterness. Red florals and earthy elements show, and the fruit exudes a degree of balancing sweetness, with some underlying alcohol drive. The wine follows a grainy textured line, the mouthfeel soft with integrated acidity, leading to a moderately lingering finish with some sweet red fruit notes. This is a soft, light, uncomplicated Pinot Noir with savoury red berry fruits and some grip. Match with pasta, pizza and antipasto over the next 2-3 years. Clones 115 and 667, from vines approx. 14 y.o., 91% from the Wairau River north bank and 9% Rarangi, 50% fermented with indigenous yeasts and 10% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 14 months in oak. 16.5/20 Jun 2016 RRP $24.95
