Homer Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-May-2012
Light ruby-red colour with some depth, light on rim. This has a fresh nose of strawberries and red cherries with nuances of fresh herbs and hints of spicy oak. Medium-bodied, soft red cherry and berry flavours and some herb notes are presented harmoniously on the palate with moderate, rounded tannin extraction providing a gentle drying texture. The acidity is low and this contributes to a well-integrated mouthfeel. The wine has a light finish with subtle flavours of red fruits. This is a soft, gentle, fruit-expressive and balanced Pinot Noir to serve with antipasto and poultry over the next 3+ years. Predominantly clone 5 with 777, Abel, 115, 667 and 10/5 fruit from the ‘Odyssey' vineyard in the Brancott Valley, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in French barriques. 16.0+/20 May 2012 RRP $19.95
