Maori Point Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Dec-2015
Even ruby-red colour with slight purple hues on the rim. This has a fresh, elegantly presented, up-front nose with soft volume and gently interwoven aromas of strawberry and red cherry fruit, with fresh herbal detail. The aromas a fine, balanced and harmoniously integrated. Medium-bodied, the fruit expression is initially restrained, showing integrated flavours of strawberries ad oft red berryfruit, along with some herbal interest. This is gently sweet and the fruit is carried by a soft-texture, fine core with supple tannins. The wine flows with good lacy acid tension, and the tightly bound, elegant flavours are carried to a soft, gently rich finish of strawberries and herbs. This is a soft-textured, harmonious, stylishly restrained Pinot Noir with a supple, but fresh mouthfeel. Serve with Asian fare over the next 4-5 years. Fruit indigenous yeast fermented with 5% whole bunches to 14.2% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 22% new French oak. Winemakers: Matt Evans and John Harris. 17.5-/20 Dec 2015 RRP $36.00
