Mount Brown ‘Grand Reserve’ Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 21-Aug-2015
Dark, moderately deep ruby-red colour with light purple hues, paler edged. The nose is elegantly proportioned and tightly bound with good depth and intensity of dark raspberry and raspberry liqueur aromas, along with a fine line of dark herbs and subtle reductive minerally elements. Liquorice, spices and nutty oak add detail and interest. Medium-full bodied and finely presented, sweet and luscious flavours of black berries and raspberries intermingle with soft herb, earth, spice and oaky elements. The fruit is supported by soft, fine-grained tannins and harmonious acidity, lending a supple mouthfeel. The wine flows gently to an ethereal finish with spicy cherry fruit and violet floral notes. This is an elegant, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with fine tannins and a soft mouthfeel. Match with poultry and pork, and with Asian cuisine over the next 5-6 years. Davis and Dijon clone fruit from a single vineyard, partially indigenous yeast fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 25% new French oak barriques. 18.0+/20 Aug 2015 RRP $29.00
