Holly by Matahiwi Estate Pinot Noir 2019, Wairarapa 

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 03-Sep-2020
Deep, dark-purple with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is bright, elegantly-presented, vibrant cranberries, red cherries, entwined with fresh herbs, sweet florals and barrel spices. Medium-bodied, the palate is bright and youthful, aromas of cranberries, red cherries interweaved sweet hibiscus florals, fresh herbs and delicate spices. The fruit is vibrant and youthful with good depth of flavour. The mouthfeel is silky with fine-grained tannin extraction, support by a lacy acid drive on a fine-textured line. This is a bright, vibrant Pinot Noir with good depth of flavours and a silky fine-grained palate. Match with lamb loin and duck over the next 5 years. Fermented to 13.5% alc, aged in French oak for 12 months, 23% new. 18.5/20 pts Sept 2020 RRP $39.99
