Murdoch James Martinborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 07-Nov-2011
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red, youthful in appearance, this is softly full on bouquet with good depth of savoury red berry fruit aromas with dried herb, mushroom and meaty complexities and some nutty notes. Medium bodied, the palate is broadly presented with rounded textures and supple, soft tannins. There is a heart of sweet and savoury berry and plum fruit with herbal notes and game, forest floor secondary interest. Soft acidity carries through to the finish. Abel, 115 and Pommard clones, mainly from 20 y.o. vines in the Martinborough Terrace, fully destemmed and fermented partially with wild yeasts to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in two-thirds new oak. This is showing signs of maturity with its soft complexities. Match with Middle Eastern red meat dishes over the next 3-4 years. 16.5+/20 Nov 2011 RRP $25.00
