Jackson Estate ‘Gum Emperor’ ‘Single Vineyard’ Waihopai Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Jul-2018
Full, dark-red colour with a lighter edge and slight garnet hues. The nose is softly full and densely packed with intense aromas of ripe, dark-red and black-berried fruits with notes of dark plums, harmoniously melded with savoury dark herb elements, subtle earth notes and nutty oak suggestions. Medium-full bodied, the palate is fulsome and rounded with a deep and dense heart of ripe black-berried fruits along with black plums, entwined with complexing savoury herb notes. The mouthfeel is plush and rounded, with soft, but considerable tannin extraction lending a full and accessible palate with softly integrated acidity. The flavours carry with good structure to a full, fruity finish. This is a full, rounded and plush, black-fruited Pinot Noir with supple tannins providing good structure. Match with roasted lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 5-6+ years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 777 and 115 from the ‘Gum Emperor’ vineyard, Waihopai, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine spending 35 days on skins and aged 17 months in 15% new French oak barrels. 18.5+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $48.00
