Hospice Wairarapa Te Muna Martinborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 13-Jul-2012
Wine from Big Sky, Cobblestone, Escarpment, Julicher, Te Hera and Redbank. 13.5% alc. Winemaker: Larry McKenna. Full, light ruby-red colour with some purple hues. This is full, solid and densely packed on the nose with aromas of dark red plum and berry fruit, unfolding layers of dark herbs, earth, liquorice and violetty florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate is robustly structured with grainy tannin extraction and full of dark berry, spice and plum flavours. The acidity is in balance, providing good tension and adds to the fruit sweetness. A chunky wine with good presence, more flavour detail and nuances emerge in the glass and linger on the firm, dry finish. This is a rich, full and solidly textured Pinot Noir with plenty of interest. Serve with roasted lamb and beef, or with hard cheeses over the next 6-8+ years. (1.5 L) 18.0+/20 Jul 2012 RRP $495.00, part of a set of 4 magnums
