Jules Taylor ‘OTQ’ ‘Limited Release’ ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Aug-2018
Full, even ruby-red colour with purple hues, a little lighter on the edge, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly presented with a tight core of sweetly ripe dark-red and black cherry and berry fruit and subtle nuances of black plums. Some sweet spices, herbs and nutty oak complexes the aromatics, unfolding dark-red and violet floral elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate has sweetly rich and plush flavours of ripe dark-red and black berried fruit, along with plums, and subtle herbal elements with nutty, spicy oak, and florals, adding detail and interest. The fruit is supported by grainy tannin extraction and grip, with balanced, background acidity. The fruit sweetness and structure are harmonious and carry the wine to a long and sustained, firm finish. This is a sweetly rich and plush, dark-red and black-fruited Pinot Noir with balanced fruit, structure and freshness. Serve with lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 6 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Wrekin’ vineyard, Brancott Valley, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 33% new French oak barriques. 18.5+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $43.90
