Hunter’s Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Oct-2017
Light ruby-red colour with some depth and light purple hues. The nose is finely concentrated with aromas of dark cherry and raspberry fruit along with subtle notes of dark herbs, spices and nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate is moderately concentrated with sweet flavours of dark cherry and raspberry fruit, unfolding spice elements and nutty oak. The flavours grow in richness to add breadth to the mouthfeel, and the fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure. The wine carries to an elegantly concentrated, lingering finish. This is a moderately concentrated, fine-grained Pinot Noir with dark cherry and raspberry fruit and spicy and nutty oak detail. Match with poultry and pork over the next 5 years. Fruit from the Omaka and Waihopi Valleys, fermented with 15% whole bunches, to 13.5% alc., the wine spending up to 25 days on skins and aged 10 months in 20% new French oak. 17.5+/20 Oct 2017 RRP $28.99
