Johner Estate Gladstone Noble Pinot Noir 2017

Sweet Wine from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 06-Dec-2017
Bright straw-yellow colour with a slight pink blush at the heart, lighter edged. The nose is stylishly restrained with gentle aromas of yellow stonefruits and delicate red berry and red floral notes, along with a little honey, unfolding fresh herb nuances. Very sweet to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft and gentle with a rounded core of honey and stonefruit flavours entwined with delicate red floral and red berry fruit suggestions. The flavours are harmoniously interwoven and flow smoothly on a gently unctuous palate with soft acidity adding to the richness. The flavours carry to a light, nuanced finish. This is a soft and delicately flavoured botrytised Noble Pinot Noir with stonefruit and red florals and an unctuous, rounded texture. Match with fruit and baked desserts over the next 3-4 years. Late-harvested estate fruit with 75% botrytis, given a short period of skin contact and cool-fermented to 12.5% alc. and 120 g/L RS. (375 ml) 17.5+/20 Dec 2017 RRP $22.00
