Monowai Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 20-Sep-2017
Even, moderately dark ruby-red colour with slight purple tints, lighter on the rim. The bouquet is softly full with light, harmoniously interwoven aromas of red cherry and berry fruit melded with dark herbs and savoury dried herbs, nuances of stalk, unfolding fragrant red floral elements. Medium-bodied, the palate has up-front flavours of savoury red berry fruit entwined with fresh and dark herbs, long with subtle floral notes, revealing hints of undergrowth. The flavours are light and evenly expressed and the mouthfeel has light tannin extraction supporting the fruit. Fresh acid energy carries the wine to a light, but lingering finish of berryfruit and herbs. This is a fresh, gently mouthfilling Pinot Noir with red berryfruit and dark and savoury herb flavours on a light palate. Serve with tuna and salmon, and poultry dishes over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from the ‘Monowai’ vineyard, a mix of clones, vines 15 y.o., destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 90% French and 10% American oak, 5% new.. 15.5+/20 Sep 2017 RRP $25.00
