Pencarrow Martinborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Nov-2015
Dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. This has a full, soft and up-front nose of ripe, dark-red berry and plum fruit with gentle nuances of liquorice and spice, along with violet florals. The aromatics are seamlessly interwoven, and exude richness. Medium-full bodied, soft, plush and ripe fruit flavours of dark red berry fruit and plums fill the palate, revealing liquorice, spices and oak toast notes. This is fleshy and rich, and the mouthfeel bright and lively with light, lacy acidity and moderate tannin extraction. The flavours of liquorice and toasty oak are carried to a soft, dry-textured, sustained finish. This is a rich and plush, juicy and ripe Pinot Noir with soft structure and spicy, toasty oak notes. Match with grilled and roasted duck and pork dishes over the next 4 years. Martinborough fruit from estate vineyards plus ‘Collins’, 90% indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole clusters to 14.2% alc., the wine spending 18 days on skins and aged 11 months in 24% new oak. 18.0/20 Nov 2015 RRP $28.85
