Kerner Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-May-2014
Light garnet-red colour with some depth. This has a full and soft bouquet of bright strawberry and soft red fruit aromas with lifted, ethereal red florals and some secondary dried herb and mushroomy elements. Medium-bodied, light, lifted soft red fruit flavours with savoury dried herb and undergrowth notes show with good energy. The fruit is supported by a fine-grained, firm underlying tannin line and fresh, lacy acidity providing good tension. The mouthfeel is subtly sweet and luscious and well-balanced, and carries through to a light, aromatic, floral-nuanced finish. This is a light and fresh, lifted, red fruited Pinot Noir showing some secondary development interest. Match with antipasto, tapas, firm-fleshed seafood and poultry over the next 4 years. Dijon clone fruit, hand-picked and hand-sorted, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.6% alc., the wine aged 10 months in French oak. 16.5+/20 May 2014 RRP $37.99
