Mischief North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 15-May-2018
Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with restrained aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruit entwined with a soft layer of dried herbs and earthy detail. This has good density and unfolds some secondary development complexity. Medium-full bodied, the palate is softly packed with good depth of savoury dark-red berry fruit melded with subtle notes of dark herbs and earthy elements, forming a rounded, solid core. The fruit is gently rich and supported by light, line-grained tannin structure with soft acidity enhancing the roundness. The flavours carry to a gentle finish. This is a softly packed Pinot Noir with a rounded core of savoury dark-red berry fruit along with secondary development notes of dried herbs and earth on a fine-textured palate. Match with coq au vin and casseroles over the next 3+ years. The label depicts the Tui. North Canterbury fruit fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in French oak barriques. 16.5+/20 May 2018 RRP $28.00
