Mahi Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 31-May-2017
Even, dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the im. The nose is softly full and well-packed with deep aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruits melded with a complex layering of dark herbs, whole bunch stalk notes, unveiling some nutty oak. This nose has fruit richness and freshness. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a sweetly rich core of complex flavours of savoury dark-red fruits along with notes of liquorice and suggestions of spicy plums. Dark herb and whole cluster stalk detail add to the interest. The flavours are harmonious and well-balanced, showing good depth and presence. The fruit richness is balanced and supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and fine acidity which allows the fruit to prevail, carrying to a long, lingering finish. This is a rich-fruited and complex dark-red berried Pinot Noir with herb, spice and stalk notes on a palate with good depth and real presence. Match with duck, pork, beef and lamb dishes over the next 6+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Twin Valleys’ vineyard in Fareham Road, the ‘Byrne’ vineyard and from Ward, indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.9% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 18% new French oak barriques, 18.5+/20 May 2017 RRP $34.90
