Martinborough Vineyard ‘Home Block’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 02-Jun-2018
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with some depth, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full and harmonious with good volume, the aromatics gently building and unfolding layers of dark-red berry fruits with a deep core of dark herbs and subtle notes of earth and a suggestion of whole bunch stalk perfume adding detail. An array of soft-red florals unfold. The aromatics show gentle ripeness and richness. Medium-bodied, the palate has gently full and rich, subtly mouthfilling flavours layered with red berry fruits, red florals and subtle notes of dark herbs with a little earthy complexity. The fruit possesses richness and an elegantly concentrated heart with underlying power, supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure. The palate has positive drive and carries to a sustained finish, This is a gently full, rich and layered Pinot Noir with sweet, mouthfilling flavours of red fruits, florals and dark herbs, a little earth, and fine-grained extraction with power and linearity. Match with duck and pork, lamb, beef and venison over the next 6-8+ years. Fruit from the oldest vines in the Martinborough Terrace, approx. 50% Abel clone, hand picked and indigenous yeast fermented with 10% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 24 days on skins and aged 12 months in 23% new French oak. 19.0-/20 Jun 2018 RRP $68.00
