Julicher ’99 Rows’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Sep-2018
Dark, deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is full and deep, and well-concentrated with aromas of savoury dark-red and black-berried fruits interwoven with a layer of dark herbs with complexing earth and a little undergrowth. Some stalky notes and a little game unfolds in the glass, The aromatics are fulsome and deep. Medium-full bodied, the palate is fulsome and rich with juicy flavours of savoury dark-red berry fruits. The flavours are detailed with subtle and balanced notes of dark herbs along with harmonious earthy elements, undergrowth and stalk, forming a rounded but concentrated core. The fruit is underlined by grainy tannin extraction lending texture and grip, along with balanced acidity, and the wine carries to a robust, juicy finish. This is a rich, juicy and fulsome Pinot Noir with savoury dark-red berry fruit flavours with herbs and earth on a palate with plenty of structure. Match with coq au vin and casseroles over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 6, 114, 115, 667, 777 and Abel, from Te Muna Road and a vineyard on the Martinborough Terraces, destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak. 18.0/20 Sep 2018 RRP $32.00
