Latitude 41 Nelson Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 04-Mar-2015
Medium red colour with some depth with lighter garnet hues on rim. The nose is fresh with tightly bound and firm aromas of red cherry fruit with hints of spices and pepper, cooler herb and stalk elements, and nuances of resinous, nutty oak detail. Medium-bodied, the palate features a tight and concentrated core of dark red cherry fruit with herbal detail and nutty oak. The fruit has sweetness, which is balanced by dry, textured tannin extraction and integrated acidity. This has some underlying power and linearity, carrying a firm and grainy palate to a moderately sustained, firm, dry finish with spicy notes. This is a firm textured Pinot Noir with sweet cherry fruit along with herb and nutty flavours. Match with pork, veal and Mediterranean fare over the next 4-5 years. A blend of 7 clones of fruit from 7 different sites, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 18 days on skins and aged 10 months in French oak. 16.5+/20 Mar 2015 RRP $22.00
