Johanneshof ‘Maybern Single Vineyard Reserve’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Apr-2018
Moderately dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the edge showing some garnet tints. The nose is softly full, open and accessible with aromas of strawberries and raspberries, along with an amalgam of red florals and subtle confectionary elements, unfolding earthy nuances. The aromatics grow gently in volume. Medium-full bodied, the palate is soft and full, with broad and open flavours of savoury strawberry and raspberry fruit along with red florals, some confectionary and jam, with nuances of earth. The fruit is supported by light, grainy tannin extraction that lends plenty of grippy mouthfeel, with soft acidity moderating the firmness. The flavours are mouthfilling and carry to a dry-textured finish of red fruits, herbs and notes of confectionary and earth. This is an open and accessible Pinot Noir with savoury red fruits with confectionary notes on a grainy-textured palate. Match with game bird dishes and casseroles over the next 5+ years. Fruit from the ‘Maybern’ vineyard, equal portions of clones 115 and Abel, fully indigenous yeast fermented to 14.5% alc., 15% by maceration carbonique, the wine aged 11 months in 30% new oak. 17.5-/20 Apr 2018 RRP $34.00
