Matahiwi Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 23-Jan-2018
Dark ruby-red colour with good depth and youthful purple hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose s soft and gently concentrated with ripe fruit aromas of dark red berry fruit and black cherries, unfolding dark herbs and raspberry liqueur notes. Medium-bodied, the palate has sweetly rich and lusciously ripe fruit flavours of black cherries and dark-red berry fruit, blackberries and plums, with dark herb detail. The mouthfeel is bright and lively with fresh, lacy acidity, and the fruit is supported by light, grainy tannin extraction and structure. A little spice, liquorice and nutty oak emerges as the wine carries to a nuanced finish. This is a fresh, bright and lively Pinot Noir with flavours of black cherries, dark raspberries and black fruits, balanced by light, grainy tannin grip. Match with duck, pork, beef and lamb dishes over the next 4 years. Clones 115, 114, 10/5, 777 and Abel, the fruit fully destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., 70% of the wine aged 8 months in barrel. 17.5/20 Jan 2018 RRP $28.99
