Mission ‘Vineyard Selection’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-May-2016
Garnet-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rime with some bricking. The nose is soft and ethereally full with a broad array of aromatic red berry fruits along with restrained notes of savoury dried herbs, elements of earth and red floral nuances. Medium-full bodied, the fruit expression is reserved, unfolding ethereal layers of soft red berry fruits, savoury dried herbs, earth, mushroom and red floral notes. Though shy in expression, there is richness and sweetness, the mouthfeel enlivened by bright acidity. The wine follows a soft, grainy-textured line, the extraction and grip balancing the fruit sweetness, which blossoms to form a rounded, plush and juicy finish. This is a reserved Pinot Noir with ethereal savoury red fruit flavours and grainy structure that blossoms in sweetness. Match with game meat and casseroles over the next 3-4+ years. Fruit from sites in Te Muna Road and Lake Ferry Road, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wines on skins 14 days post ferment, and matured in tank. 17.0-/20 May 2016 RRP $20.00
