Jules Taylor Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Jun-2017
Dark, even ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is finely concentrated, firm and tightly bound with aromas of ripe black cherry fruit along with blackberries, a little hint of liquorice, dark herbs, unfolding violet floral and blackberry liqueur notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate has vibrant and lively, juicy and succulent fruit flavours of blackberries and black cherries, with complexing notes of liquorice, dark herbs, florals and blackberry liqueur. The fruit is quite primary in expression and is enlivened by bright, lacy acidity, and the palate is guided by fine, grainy tannin extraction. The wine is carried by the structure to a firm, crisp, lingering finish of blackberries and black cherries. This is a bright and vibrant black-fruited Pinot Noir with a bright mouthfeel and fine-grained structure that carries the wine. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from the Brancott and Omaka Valleys, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged predominantly in 20% new French oak, with 10% in tank for 11 months. 17.5+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $33.00
