Pegasus Bay Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 30-Nov-2016
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, lighter edged. This has a well-proportioned and concentrated nose with deep aroma of ripe, dark-red berry fruit with a core of savoury dark herbs, unfolding full waves of ethereal aromatics of red floral perfumes, herbs, spices and nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, this has a rich, lively, vibrant and complex-detailed palate with flavours of dark-red berry fruits and subtle layers of savoury dark herbs, along with an array of dark-red florals, spice notes and nutty oak. The mouthfeel is sweet, lush and lively, balanced by fine-grained tannin extraction and excellent, underlying acid vitality. The rich flavours are mouthfilling and carry to a long, lingering finish. This is a rich, vibrant and mouthfilling, complex-detailed Pinot Noir with dark-red fruits, florals, savoury herb, earth and spice flavour on a fine-grained, well-structured palate. Serve with coq au vin, casseroles and game meat over the next 6-7+ years. Multiple clones, some up to 30 y.o. and ungrafted, indigenous yeast fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 30% new French oak barriques. 19.0/20 Dec 2016 RRP $49.00
