Pegasus Bay Waipara Pinot Noir 2008

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 11-Mar-2011
Estate Waipara fruit with 10% whole bunch, fermented to 13.8% alc.,and aged 24 months in barrel. Very deep ruby red with youthful purple hues, this has a vibrant, but rather ethereal bouquet of dark red berry fruits and florals that unfold a range of aromatic nuances. Elegantly proportioned, this has a tight, concentrated core of fruit framed within fine-grained tannins. Seemingly soft and supple, the accessibility gives way to good structure and a subtle build-up of flavours of dried herbs, spices, and oak to the base. Long and sustained on the finish.  Mar 2011
