Paddy Borthwick ‘Right Hand’ Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Mar-2018
Full, very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is soft and ethereal with violet floral perfumes entwined with dark-red and black cherry and berry fruit, unveiling subtle nuances of dark herbs. The aromatics are harmoniously integrated and refined in expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with gently voluminous and mouthfilling flavours of ripe dark-red cherry and berry fruit with raspberry liqueur notes, unfolding violet florals. The fruit is beautifully aromatic with an array of florals, enlivened by balanced acidity. The wine flows gently along a very refined, velvety line, leading to an ethereal, fragrant finish. This is a beautifully fragrant Pinot Noir with dark-red cherry and berry fruit with raspberry and floral flavours on a refined palate. Match with poultry and pork over the next 6+ years. A vineyard and barrel selection wine by Paddy Borthwick, the fruit fully destemmed and fermented with whole berries to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in approx. 30% new oak. 70 dozen made. 18.5+/20 Mar 2018 RRP $55.00
