Henry’s Hills Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 03-Dec-2013
A Borthwick label for export and now domestic on-premise. Gladstone fruit indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc, the wine seeing limited oak contact and aging in barrel. Light, even ruby-red colour, lighter on edge. The nose is soft and light with aromatic, savoury red berry fruit with lifted red florals, harmoniously intermixed with subtle spice and dried herb nuances. Medium-bodied, light fruit flavours of soft, savoury strawberries are melded with dried herbs and earthy spices. The tannin extraction is modest and softly supple, and along with the soft acidity the palate flows gently to a light vinous finish with a little alcohol warmth showing. This is a soft, light and up-front Pinot Noir with savoury strawberry flavours. Serve with antipasto, salmon or tuna, and poultry over the next 3+ years. 16.0+/20 Dec 2013 RRP $22.50
