Pegasus Bay Waipara Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 22-Feb-2012
Dark, moderately deep ruby-red colour with purple and garnet hues on edge. This is soft and full with gentle, ethereal aromas of red berry and plum fruits, all harmoniously interwoven and presented with elegance. Medium-full bodied, this has mouthfilling flavours of dark berry and plum fruits with integrated and balanced oak shine. The palate is densely packed, with supple tannins and soft acidity contributing to the richness. This has good drive and the flavours of sweetly ripe berry fruits is sustained with the richness underlined by fine, firm tannins. This is a harmoniously interwoven, richly flavoured wine with subtle power and extract that drink well over the next 5-7+ years. Serve with game meat. Made from a variety of clones from estate vines up to 25 y.o., destemmed, but fermented with many whole berries to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 30% new French oak barriques. 18.5/20 Feb 2012 RRP $46.95
