Koha Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Feb-2017
Even ruby-red colour, paler on the edge. The nose is soft with red cherry fruit aromas melded with fresh and dried herbs, unfolding red floral and raspberry notes with hints of liquorice and spices. Medium-full bodied, the palate has sweet and lively flavours of red cherry and berry fruit entwined with soft herb, liquorice and spice notes. The flavours are gently mouthfilling and supported by light, fine-grained tannin structure with balanced acidity. This has sweetness and energy, and the wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish of red cherries and liquorice. This is a moderately rich, lively Pinot Noir with red cherry, liquorice, herb and spice flavours on a light-structured palate. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4 years. Southern Valleys fruit, 62% from Omaka North and 38% from Benmorven Road, indigenous yeast started and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wines spending 7-10 days on skins post ferment and aged 9 months in oak barrels and stainless-steel tanks. 17.0/20 Feb 2017 RRP $23.99
