Nor’Wester by Greystone North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 24-Jul-2017
Dark, deep red colour with some depth and some garnet hues, lighter on the rim. This has a full, broad bouquet with well-packed aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruit with a complex amalgam of dark-red florals, dried herbs and earth, unfolding spice elements. This has aromatic penetration and density. Medium-full bodied, the palate is solid and mouthfilling with flavours of savoury dark-red berry fruits melded with earth and dried herbs. The fruit is encased by considerable tannin extraction which is moderately fine-grained. The mouthfeel has fresh, integrated acidity with some underlying power that carries the complex savoury fruit and earthy nuances to a sustained finish. This is a mouthfilling, complex flavoured Pinot Noir with savoury dark-red fruits, earth and dried herb notes on a well-structured palate with a fresh mouthfeel. Serve with casseroles and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 4-5 years. Hand-picked and hand-sorted fruit from mature vines on the Omihi northern slopes, fully-destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine given 30 days skin contact and aged 16 months in 30% new French oak. 1,103 cases made. 17.5+/20 Jul 2017 RRP $33.00
