Natural Wine Co. Gisborne Organic Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 18-Feb-2018
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is full and deep with very ripe fruit aromas of blackberries along with boysenberries and black plums, unfolding some herbal and tamarillo notes. This is soft and densely packed with solidness and presence. Medium-bodied, the palate has sweet and vibrant flavours of ripe blackberries and plums with boysenberry elements, entwined with dark herb and tamarillo fruit notes. The mouthfeel is plush and juicy with subtle jam notes adding to the richness. The fruit is underlined by supple tannin extraction and integrated acidity, and the wine carries with good drive and energy to a sweet finish of black fruits and herbs. This is a plush, up-front, juicy and rich, ripe black-fruited Pinot Noir with herbal elements. Match with barbecued fare, and Asian and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3 years. Pinot Noir fruit from Manutuke, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine given 9 months seasoned oak contact. Certified Asurequality organic. 17.5/20 Feb 2018 RRP $22.00
