Mission ‘Jewelstone’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-May-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is full with sweetly ripe aromas of blackberries and black plums, along with a violet and red floral lift, and subtle, fresh herb and oak toast elements. The aromatic fragrances build with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate features full and rich flavours of ripe dark berry and plum fruit. The flavours are supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and structure that form a firm core. An array of red florals unfolds, along with herbs, nuts and toasty oak notes. The acidity is light and refreshing, providing energy, carrying the wine to a long, juicy finish od plums and berryfruit. This is a plush, juicy and ripe, black berry and plum fruited Pinot Noir with good depth and structure, unfolding floral, herb and oak notes. Match with pork, lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 6 years. Fruit from the company’s ‘Cable Station’ Awatere vineyard, transported to the Hawke’s Bay winery for vinification. The fruit was fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine on skins for 8 days post ferment and aged 12 months in 10% new French oak barrels. 18.5+/20 May 2017 RRP $50.00
