Palliser Estate Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 08-May-2018
Even ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is very soft and gently voluminous, unfolding subtle layers of dark-red berry fruits melded with dark herbs, nuances of spice and liquorice, unfolding an ethereal array of red florals. This is a little shy, but has beauty and finesse. Medium-bodied and elegantly concentrated, the palate possesses layers of soft red berry fruit flavours melded with fragrant dark herbs, red florals, spices and liquorice. The fruit has a delicate richness and sweetness that is balanced by very fine-grained, flowery, but supple tannins and ripe acidity. The flavours blossom in floral lift and show spice detail as the wine carries to a gently lingering, nuanced finish. This is a very refined, subtly layered and supple, fine-grained Pinot Noir with delicate red fruits, florals herbs and spices. It will grow in richness and depth over the next 5-6 years. Match with poultry and pork.
