Middle-Earth Nelson Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 07-Aug-2018
Even, light ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is firm with good depth and intense aromas of dark-red berry fruits along with dark herbs and nutty oak elements, unfolding dark-red floral notes. Medium-full bodied, the palate has vibrant and gently rich fruit flavours of red cherries and berries, along with fresh herbs, fragrant dark-red florals and subtle nutty oak elements. The fruit forms a rounded, but concentrated core and is supported by fine-grained supple tannins providing structure. Fine acidity contributes to the freshness and vitality. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a sweetly rich, vibrant Pinot Noir with a rounded, but concentrated palate supported by fine structure. Match with duck and pork over the next 3-4 years. Pinot Noir fruit, clones 5 and 10/5, undergoing minimal crushing to encourage carbonic fermentation, fermented to 13.5% alc. the wine aged 10 months in French and Hungarian oak. 17.5-/20 Aug 2018 RRP $25.00
