Mt Beautiful North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 12-Apr-2018
Dark ruby-red colour with some black hues and a good heart, a little lighter on the rim with purple tints. The nose is soft with gently voluminous aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit interwoven with nuances of black herbs and black-red florals. The aromatics build to form a finely concentrated core. Medium-full bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant fruit flavours of dark-red cherry and black berried fruits, along with light notes of dark herbs, red florals and hints of raspberry liqueur. The mouthfeel is supple with light tannin extraction supporting the fruit, and balanced acid freshness. The fruit sweetness carries the wine with good energy to a nuanced finish of dark-red fruits. This is a bright and vibrant Pinot Noir with dark-red cherry and black berried flavours along with subtle floral, herb and raspberry elements on a supple palate. Match with poultry, pork, beef and lamb over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit, predominantly clones 667 and 777, fully-destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak barrels. 2,200 cases made. 18.0-/20 Apr 2018 RRP $33.00
