Johner Estate Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 25-Jan-2016
Full, dark, deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is full and up-front with good depth of ripe, dark red berry and cherry fruit aromas entwined with an amalgam of fresh dark herbs a fragrant violet florals. Medium-full bodied, up-front flavours of sweet dark red cherry fruit are melded with subtle herbal notes, unfolding layers of violet and dark red florals. Fresh, lacy acidity enhances the juiciness of the fruit and enlivens the mouthfeel. Fine, grainy tannins support the fruit, lending a dry texture which carries the wine to a light, violet and cherryish finish. This is an up-front, sweet cherry fruited Pinot Noir with violetty aromatics and a dry-textured palate. Match with pasta, poultry and pork dishes over the next 4 years. Wairarapa fruit fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in seasoned French oak barriques. 17.0+/20 Jan 2016 RRP $26.00
