Huia Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 17-Jan-2014
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with light purple hues on edge. The bouquet is full and softly ethereal with an array of dark red berry fruits with fragrant and perfumed floral notes, dried herbs and spices, along with complex savoury layers and the beginnings of secondary development. The aromatics have an understated depth and concentration. Medium-full bodied, deeply concentrated flavours of spiced raspberry fruit and dried herbs form a deep core that is complexed by savoury stalk notes, spices and oak. The mouthfeel is bright and lively with lacy acidity and a fine-grained, firm-textured line. The extract and structure grows to become a feature, providing the framework carrying the flavours to a very long finish with sweet fruit and nutty nuances. This is a concentrated, complex Pinot Noir with lively raspberry and spiced herb fruitiness and a fir-structured palate. Match with roasted red meat dishes over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from the ‘Home’ vineyard from vines 16 y.o., and from the Brancott Valley, hand-picked and destemmed, fermented to 13.6% alc., the wine aged 11 months in French oak. 18.0+/20 Jan 2014 RRP $38.00
