Pencarrow Martinborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 25-Nov-2014
Dark, deep hearted purple-red colour, lighter on rim, youthful in appearance. The nose is softly full with aromas of ripe, dark red berry and plum fruits, entwined with subtle herb, liquorice and spice notes grow in volume in the glass. Full-bodied and full-flavoured, juicy and bright fruit flavours of dark red berry fruits, plums and violet florals are enlivened by fresh, racy, elevated acidity. The fruit is tight and firmly bound with deep core, supported by fine, grainy tannins, and the wine carries through to a refreshing, sinewy finish with long, lingering plum and spice notes. This is a bright, lively and juicy dark-fruited Pinot Noir with a firm line and fresh acidity. Match with most red meat dishes over the next 4-5+ years. Clones 114, 115, 667, 777, 10/5, Abel and 5 drawn from across the company’s vineyards, from vines 7-23 y.o., given a cool soak and indigenous yeast fermented with approx. 20% whole clusters to 14.3% alc., the wine spending 13 days on skins and 12 months in 23% new oak. 18.0-/20 Nov 2014 RRP $28.85
