Martinborough Vineyard ‘Te Tera’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 19-Oct-2017
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with light purple hues on the rim. The nose is bright and vibrant with fresh, primary aromas of ripe, dark red cherry and berry fruit, unfolding dark-red florals and red plum nuances. The aromatics are soft and build in volume in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the palate has vibrant and lively flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit with n amalgam of dark herbs, dark-red florals and nuances of plums and spices. The fruit is sweet and luscious and underlined by fine, supple tannin extraction and the palate is enlivened with fresh, lacy acidity. The flavours carry with poise and energy to a long, lingering finish of dark cherries, florals and spice notes. This is a vibrant and plush, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit with florals and spices on a fine, supple palate. Match with duck and pork over the next 4-5 years. Fruit mainly from the ‘Fraters’ vineyard on clay soils, the remainder from the ‘Home’ block and ‘Todds’ vineyard, predominantly clones 777, 667 and 115 with some Abel, 5 and 6, vines 16-37 y.o., almost all destemmed and 90% indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc,, the wine aged 10 months in 15% new French oak. 18.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $30.00
