Pencarrow Martinborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 06-Jul-2011
A label that consistently over-performs. Bright and full, purple-hued ruby-red, youthful in appearance, this has a full nose of fresh, vibrant dark cherry, berry and plum aromas lifted with violetty notes and backed by spicy oak nuances. A full-bodied, solid and robustly structured wine, the flavours of ripe, dark berry fruit, liquorice and spicy plums are framed within a firm, but accessible palate that is underscored by soft acidity. The serious extraction carries the palate and forms a dry and lingering finish. This is a bold wine with the potential to develop over the next 5-6 years. Martinborough Pinot Noir fruit given a cold soak and fermented to 14.0% alc., with some indigenous yeast employed, the wine aged 10 months in French oak. Serve with casseroles, hearty pasta and red meat dishes, and flavoursome Middle Eastern cuisine. 18.0-/20 Jul 2011 RRP $24.00
