Hunter’s Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Apr-2017
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is rich and rounded with well-packed aromas of ripe dark-red berry fruits with an amalgam of black plums and dark herbs, forming a firm core that unveils dark-red floral notes. Medium-fill bodied, the palate has lively and rich flavours of dark-red berry fruits and subtle notes of plums and nuances of liquorice and dark herbs. The fruit is supported by supple, fine-grained tannin extraction and enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity. The flavours carry to a restrained finish with soft, dry textures and flavours of red fruits and herbs. This is a lively and mouthfilling, rich dark-red fruited Pinot Noir with supple tannin grip and a fresh mouthfeel. Serve with duck and pork dishes over the next 4-5 years. Clones 777 and 115 fruit from Rapaura and Omaka, vines10-20 y.o., indigenous yeast fermented with 15-20% whole bunches to 13.7% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 20% new French oak. 18.0-/20 Apr 2017 RRP $28.99
