Lauregan Central Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 13-Jun-2016
Very dark, deep, black-red colour with light garnet hues on the rim. The nose is softly full and open with aromas of dark-red berry fruit melded with spicy oak, cinnamon and complexing nuances of camphor, dark herbs, liquorice and plums. The aromatics are well-concentrated at the heart. Medium-bodied, the palate is up-front with softly layered and deep flavours of spicy, savoury red berryfruits, plums, red florals, spices and cinnamon, along with camphor and liquorice. The palate features fine-grained tannin extraction that provides body and presence. Soft, integrated acidity lends a roundness to the mouthfeel, and the flavours carry to a long, lingering finish of spices, camphor and oak. This is a full, soft, layered Pinot Noir with spicy red fruit, plums and liquorice on a grainy-textured palate. Match with Middle Eastern and Asian fare over the next 5-6 years. Pinot Noir from the ‘Lauregan’ vineyard, destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in one-third new oak, one-third 1 y.o. and one-third 2 y.o. barrels. 17.5+/20 Jun 2016 RRP $40.00
