Pied Stilt Nelson Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 16-Feb-2016
The ‘Special Label’ Pinot Noir bottling. Fruit fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 50% new French oak. Light garnet-red colour with bricking on the edge. The bouquet is elegantly concentrated and firm with complexing secondary development, showing savoury red cherry and berry fruit aromas melded with dried herbs and undergrowth, along with nutty oak, lifted floral notes and a little volatility. Medium-bodied, this has a good core of sweet and savoury red cherry and berry fruit entwined with nutty, cedary oak, dried herbs and mushroom complexities. The fruit sweetness is enlivened by acid vitality and the wine follows a fine-grained tannin line. The mouthfeel is balanced and flows with good energy, leading to a sustained finish with lifted cherry and oak nuances. This is an elegantly concentrated, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with secondary interest and fine-grained tannins. Serve with mushroom and game meat dishes over the next 3-4 years. 16.5+/20 Feb 2016 RRP $40.00
