Merekara Wines Grace’s Secret Pinot Noir 2021, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 22-Mar-2023
Moderately deep ruby-red, even colour throughout. The nose is softly full, with succulent red cherry, plum, floral aromas and subtle spice. Medium-light bodied, red cherry and plum aromas melded with dark herb, floral and cinnamon. The tannin is supple and lightly textured; whole bunch fermentation contributed floral and herbaceous details. A creamy, earthy tone lingers to a dry, fragranced finish. This Awatere Valley Pinot Noir shows delicate floral, herb and red fruit with a supple, refined palate, exhibiting purity and careful winemaking. Match with lamb koftas and duck over the next 5 years. One bunch per shoot, handpicked, cold settled, wild fermented with 40% whole bunch to 13.5% alc, aged in barrel for 10 months. 696 bottles produced. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Mar 2023 RRP $36.50
