Mahi Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Apr-2014
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, lighter on rim. The nose is softly full and ethereally fragrant with aromas of strawberry and red cherries, along with subtle notes of dried herbs, spices and earth. The fruit builds in depth, forming a good core, unfolding red floral perfumes with aeration. Medium-bodied, gently luscious flavours of savoury strawberries and dark cherries are brightened by vibrant acidity. The mouthfeel is fresh and lively, with the palate core supported by supple, refined tannins. The wine is very integrated and flows seamlessly, and the flavours lead to an elegant, fine-textured dry finish with lifted, savoury red fruit notes on the finish. This is an ethereal, seamless and supple Pinot Noir with savoury red fruit flavours. Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Home Block’, ‘Twin Valleys’, the ‘Ballot Block’, the ‘Byrne’ vineyard and ‘Ward Farm’, predominantly destemmed, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.1% alc., the wine aged 11 months in French oak barriques. Match with risottos, pasta and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine over the next 5-6 years. 18.0+/20 Apr 2014 RRP $29.00
