Paulownia Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 23-Apr-2017
Even garnet-red colour with lighter tawny and brick hues on the rim. The bouquet is softly full with aromas of savoury red berry fruit along with dried herb, earthy and mushroom notes and resinous and nutty at the core. The aromatics grow in depth with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is softly mouthfilling with interwoven and integrated savoury secondary flavours of red berry fruits, dried herbs, earth and undergrowth notes, along with nutty and resinous oak elements. The mouthfeel is soft and dry with fine-grained tannin extraction with soft acidity leading the wine with good line to a savoury finish. This is a savoury red-fruited Pinot Noir with secondary flavours and some resinous oak and a soft, dry mouthfeel. Match with mushroom dishes and casseroles over the next 2+ years. All clone 10/5 fruit, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.3% alc., the wine aged 12 months in seasoned French oak barriques. 15.5-/20 Apr 2017 RRP $23.00
