Moy Hall ‘Terrace’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 17-Dec-2018
Ruby-red colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim with a little garnet. The nose is fresh and firm with tightly bound aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with fresh herbs and red floral notes, underlined by subtle oak nuances. Medium-bodied, the palate is sweetly luscious with juicy and succulent flavours of red cherry and berry fruit with notes of fresh herbs unfolding lifted red florals. The fruit sweetness is enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, and supported by light, supple tannin extraction. The fruit richness is the feature and the wine carries to a fresh and juicy, lingering finish. This is an elegant, lusciously juicy and sweet red cherry fruited Pinot Noir with notes of herbs on a fresh palate with light, supple tannins. Serve with salmon, tuna, poultry and pork over the next 3-4 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 14, 115 and 777 from the terrace part of the vineyard, vines planted 2001-2005, indigenous yeast fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.1% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 20% new French oak barrels. 4585 bottles made. 17.5/20 Dec 2018 RRP $35.00
