Mission ‘Vineyard Selection’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 09-Aug-2015
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, lighter on rim with some garnet and bricking. The nose is softly full and accessible with good depth of dark red berry fruit aromas entwined with red plums and florals, revealing nuances of liquorice, herbs and spices. Medium-bodied, the fruit is restrained and slender in presentation with light, juicy red berry fruit flavours enlivened by fresh acidity. The mouthfeel is soft and vinous with light tannin extraction that lends a subtle textural line that carries the flavours. The wine leads to a light red berry and floral finish. This is a light, up-front, fresh and subtly juicy Pinot Noir with red berry fruit and red floral notes. Match with antipasto and firm-fleshed fish over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the company’s ‘Cable Station’ road vineyard in the Awatere, crushed, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 14 days on skins post ferment and aged 3 months in French oak. 16.0+/20 Aug 2015 RRP $21.99
