Ma Maison Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 03-Feb-2017
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim with a little purple. The nose is fresh and full with a good core of dark-red berry fruit with a layer of dark herbs, unfolding notes of red florals and complexing earth elements. The aromatics build in depth with aeration revealing some nutty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate has good depth and presence of savoury dark-red berry fruits entwined with dark herbs, soft earthy notes and red florals, along with nutty oak. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively with supple tannin extraction in support, and balanced, fresh, lacy acidity. The wine has positive linearity carried by the acidity, leading to lingering finish. This is a fresh, red berry fruited Pinot Noir with savoury earth, herb and nutty notes, supple tannins and a palate carried by the acidity. Match with poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from the ‘Ma Maison’ vineyard, 8 clones employed, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 9-10 months in seasoned oak. 8,097 bottles made. 17.5/20 Feb 2017 RRP $45.00
