Lime Hill Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 20-Jul-2018
Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, a little lighter edged. The npose is bright and vibrant with deep aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with dark herb and subtle whole bunch stalk perfumes, unfolding spice nuances which add complexing detail. Medium-bodied, the palate has bright and lively fruit flavours of dark red cherry and berry fruit, with subtle layers of dark and fresh herbs, and whole cluster stalk nuances. Liquorice and spice elements add interest. The mouthfeel has freshness and vitality from the lacy acidity and the fruit is underlined by supple tannin extraction. The wine flows with good energy and drive to an elegant, sustained finish. This is a vibrant and bright, dark-red cherry and berry fruited Pinot Noir with an elegant proportion, fine tannins and a fresh mouthfeel. Serve with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5+ years. Fruit from the ‘Lime Hill’ vineyard fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 21 days on skins and aged 12 months in 25% new French oak. 18.5-/20 Dec 2017 RRP $49.00
