Kate Radburnd ‘Vine Velvet’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 18-May-2015
Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter on rim. The nose is fresh and bright with up-front, ripe, primary dark red berry and plum fruit aromas, unfolding subtle dark herb and savoury earthy detail in the glass. Medium-full bodied, bright and juicy, ripe dark red berry fruit flavours fill the front palate, revealing dried herb, nutty and earthy elements. The fruit is underscored by grainy extraction that grows in presence and drying textures. There is good vinous presence and weight, and the tannins carry the wine to a dry, textural finish with fresh, lingering acidity, This is an up-front, juicy Pinot Noir that has plenty of structure and grip. Serve with antipasto, coq au vin and roasted red meats over the next 3-4 years. Martinborough fruit, a portion cold soaked and fermented to 13.7% alc., the wine aged approximately equally in barriques and tank. 1,950 cases made. 16.5+/20 May 2015 RRP $18.00
