Kumeu River ‘Hunting Hill’ Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 06-Feb-2018
Light ruby-red colour with some depth and slight garnet hues, lighter on the rim. This has a softly concentrated and full nose with aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit with a subtle note of nutty oak and suggestions of dark herbs. The aromatics form a rounded and deep heart, growing in firmness and intensity with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a fine core of dark-red cherry and berry fruit with soft notes of nutty oak along with dark herb detail. The fruit has richness, underlined by supple tannin extraction lending a soft, balanced structure with integrated acidity. The wine carries smoothly to a long finish of cherry fruit and nutty oak. This Pinot Noir has cherry, berry, dark herb and nutty flavours with gentle richness and supple tannins. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4+ years. First released as a single vineyard wine with the 2013 vintage. Hand-picked fruit from the ’Hunting Hill’ vineyard, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 2-3 weeks on skins and aged 11 months in seasoned oak. 17.5+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $50.00
