Julicher ‘Dara Vineyard’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 28-Oct-2017
Even, dark ruby-red colour, paler on edge with slight garnet hues. The nose is elegantly presented with harmonious aromas of dark-red berry fruit along with lifted dark-red florals forming a firm and tight core, unfolding notes of dark herbs and subtle, savoury earthy complexities. Medium-bbodied. The palate has richly sweet and bright, poised fruit flavours of dark-red berry fruits and a lifted dark-red floral array entwined with subtle notes of dark herbs and earth. The palate is fresh and vibrant with fine-grained tannin extraction and bright acidity. The flavours flow with energy, carrying to a long and sustained, nuanced finish of savoury fruit and red florals. This is a rich, dark-red berry fruited and floral-nuanced Pinot Noir with fine tannins, bright acidity, and subtle complexities with vibrancy and poise. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 6-8+ years. A barrel selection wine. 100% Abel clone fruit from the ‘Dara’ vineyard, Todds Road, hand-picked, destemmed and fermented to 14.17% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 20% new French oak. 140 cases made. 19.0/20 Oct 2017 RRP $60.00
