Harwood Hall Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Nov-2018
Even ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant and a little slender in presentation with an aromatic amalgam of red cherry fruit with fresh and dark herb notes forming a gentle core, unfolding subtle red florals and a hint of spice. Medium-full bodied, the palate has restrained flavours of red cherry and berry fruit with subtle notes of herbs. The fruit expression is a little shy, but the mouthfeel has presence. The fruit is supported by light tannin extraction with some fresh acidity enlivening the mouthfeel. The wine carries to a light finish. This is a restrained Pinot Noir with red cherry fruit and moderate mouthfeel and presence and fresh acidity. Serve with tuna, salmon and with tapas over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the company’s Rarangi vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.9% alc. the wine aged 10 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques. 16.5/20 Nov 2018 RRP $24.99
