Mountford ‘Village’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 03-Nov-2012
A selection of the fruitiest barrels, the wine from both contract growers and estate grapes. Seepish rub-red colour with good heart, some garnet hues on rim. The bouquet is full and robust with savoury red berry fruits, dried herbs, and secondary development adding interest. A full-bodied wine, alcoholic warmth is noticeable, but the fruit is bright and juicy. Red berry fruits and savoury red plums, backed by oak spices are the feature, the breadth enhanced by soft acidity. Restrained tannin extraction provides the backbone, with drive from the alcohol. This is a full-bodied, slightly hot, generous, savoury Pinot Noir to match with slow-cooked game meat over the next 5-6 years. 17.0+/20 Oct 2012 RRP $32.00
