Johner Estate ‘Reserve’ Gladstone Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 01-Mar-2011
A selection from different blocks in the oldest part of the Johner Estate vineyard, the vines 10 y.o.. Fermented to 14.6% alc. and aged around 20 months in mainly new oak. Deepish ruby-red in colour, youthful in appearance, this has a full, voluminous nose with concentrated aromas and perfumes of dark and red berry fruits, warm earth and spices. The palate is full, rich, juicy and plump, yet with a stylish restraint from alcohol cut and fine-textured tannins. Oaking is subtle and integrated. This has a subtle power and the fruit depth is underscored by the serious structure which carries through to the sustained, dry finish. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 6-8+ years. 18.0+/20 Mar 2011 RRP $50.00
