Mud House ‘Sub Region Series’ ‘The Narrows’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Nov-2016
Moderately dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose has a firm core of ripe dark-red berry fruit melded with subtle notes of dark herbs and fragrant violetty florals, unveiling earthy, minerally and liquorice elements. The aromatics grow in volume in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the palate us up-front with juicy and moderately rich flavours of dark-red berry fruits entwined with plums and liquorice. Dark herbs, floral and earthy elements emerge to add detail. The palate is softly-textured with supple tannins that providing gentle structure, and the mouthfeel has balanced underlying acidity. The fruit sweetness carries to a lively, dark-red fruited finish with liquorice and spices. This is a fresh, juicy, dark-red berry and plum fruited Pinot Noir on a supple textured palate with freshness and energy. Match with antipasto and tapas, and with poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from ‘The Narrows’, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., 50% aged 10 months in 20% new oak. 1,350 cases made. 17.0+/20 Nov 2016 RRP $20.00
