Martinborough Vineyard ‘Te Tera’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 02-Jun-2018
Moderately deep and dark ruby-red with slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly fresh with medium deep aromas of cherries and strawberries with raspberry notes, along with fresh and dark herbs, unfolding red floral elements. This is up-front, pretty, fragrant and uncomplicated. Medium-bodied, the palate is gently sweet and elegant with soft flavours of strawberries and cherries, and subtle raspberry notes. The palate is fresh and lively with mouthwatering acidity, and the fruit is supported by light, supple tannin extraction. As the wine flows, red florals and dark herbs emerge and carry to a lively, lingering finish with brisk acidity. This is a gently sweet and up-front Pinot Noir with fragrant strawberry, cherry and floral fruit with some herb notes and lively acidity and easy tannins. Match with antipasto, tuna, salmon and poultry dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit predominantly from Fraters Road, mainly Dijon clones, vines younger at 8-22 y.o. fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 15% new French oak. 17.5/20 Jun 2018 RRP $30.00
