Martinborough Vineyard Martinborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Aug-2013
Dark, deep ruby-red with some garnet hues. This has a fragrant, near ethereal bouquet with a complex array of soft red berry fruit, earth and spice aromas, very gently expressed. Medium-bodied and legant in proportion, the flavours are a little shy, but build in concentration and savoury interest. The extraction is fine and supple and the mouthfeel fresh and lively with good acid balance. The tannins build in presence and provide some firmness, carrying the flavours to a savoury finish with dried herb flavours. This is an elegant wine with some complex red fruit and herb flavours and growing firmness. Keep 5-6 years. Abel, clone 5 and 10/5 fruit from the ‘Home Block’, ‘Duncan’s Paddock’, ‘Moy Hall’ and ‘Wharekauhau’, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 21 days on skins and aged 12 months in 28% new French oak. 18.5+/20 Aug 2013 RRP $70.00
