Johanneshof ‘Maybern Single Vineyard Reserve’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Nov-2015
Light garnet-red colour with some depth, paler on rim with a little bricking. The nose is softly full with gently presented aromas of savoury red berry fruits entwined with subtle herbal and earthy layers. Notes of plums and spices emerge along with nuances of cedary oak. The aromatics are integrated and build in depth with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the flavours of savoury red berry fruits, florals and cedar are interwoven with herb, earth and spice elements, along with a suggestion of milk chocolate. The flavours smoothly fill the mouth with sweetness and are supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and lacy acidity, which lend a degree of concentration. The wine flows to a solidly packed, fine, dry-textured finish with red fruits, spices, earth and cedar. This is a full, broad, mouthfilling Pinot Noir with sweet red fruits and savoury spices, and a grainy textured palate. Match with Middle Eastern fare and casseroles over the next 5+ years. Clones 115 and Abel, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine on skins 15 days and aged 12 months in 30% new French oak. 17.5/20 Nov 2015 RRP $32.00
