Mansion House Bay Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 02-Mar-2015
Marlborough fruit, a portion hand-picked, destemmed, given a cold soak and fermented, partially by indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in seasoned French oak barriques. Light garnet hued red colour with some depth. The nose is soft, diffuse and restrained with straightforward aromas of red berry fruits, florals and a subtle herbal underlay, unfolding savoury oak and dusty, earthy nuances. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a core with light flavours of savoury red berry fruits, herbs, earth and dusty oak, along with red florals. The tannin extraction is light, providing some grainy textures and linearity, with brisk acidity cut and a mouthwatering freshness. The tannins and some alcohol power carry the wine to a light, dry finish with bitter cherry elements. This is a light-fruited Pinot Noir with some grainy tannin textures and acid bite. Match with tuna and salmon, antipasto and poultry over the next 3 years. 16.0+/20 Mar 2015 RRP $27.99
