Kina Cliffs Nelson Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 27-Aug-2016
Dark, deep, garnet-red colour with a little bricking on the rim. The bouquet is full and deep with harmoniously melded secondary aromas of savoury dark-red and black-berried fruits along with earth, undergrowth, game and mushroom notes forming a concentrated core. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft but densely packed flavours of savoury dark red and black fruits layered with game, undergrowth and earth. The mouthfeel is rounded and accessible with soft, grainy tannins supporting the fruit, providing good body. Subtle, integrated acidity lends energy and the wine leads to a firm, concentrated, lingering finish of earth and game. This is a well-concentrated Pinot Noir with savoury, secondary dark-red berried fruit entwined with earthy, gamy and undergrowth flavours, and a firm finish. Match with casseroles and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 115, 667 and 777, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in French oak. 76 cases made. 17.5-/20 Aug 2016 RRP $30.00
