Moy Hall Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 17-Dec-2018
Even dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with some garnet hues. The nose is gently full and deep with aromas of dark-red and black berried fruits entwined with dark herbs and subtle notes of whole bunch stalk perfumes and a layering of spicy, nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate has firm and well-concentrated flavours of dark-red and black berried fruits melded with complexing nuances of dark herbs and subtle whole bunch stalk elements. Some savoury, spicy and nutty oak flavours add detail. The fruit is supported by fine, grainy-textured extraction and structure with integrated acidity. This has a firm, linear core that carries the wine to a sustained finish of dark-red and black fruits along with spicy oak. This is a firm and concentrated dark-red and black fruited Pinot Noir with herbs, and nutty oak on a well-structured, fine-textured palate. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 6+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the sloping rows of the vineyard, clones Abel, 5, ungrafted 10/5, 13 and 6, vines planted 1991-2001, indigenous yeast fermented with 15% whole bunches to 13.7% alc., the wine aged 13 months n 20% new French oak barrels. 1100 bottles made. 18.5-/20 Dec 2018 RRP $70.00
