Porters Martinborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 01-Nov-2012
Bright, light ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on rim. The nose is elegantly proportioned and shows good intensity and concentration of fresh, firm, dark red berry fruit aromas along with mineral and dark herb notes and a hint of reduction. Medium-bodied, the flavours are an amalgam of red berries, aromatic spices and red florals, enlivened by fine, lacy and racy acidity. Very fine-grained tannins provide a firm line, concentrated core and flowing mouthfeel supporting the fruit. The flavours are carried by the crisp acidity to a long and sustained finish featuring oak-spiced red fruits. This is an elegant and slender Pinot Noir with a fine-textured, firm and racy mouthfeel. It will develop soft aromatic nuances over the next 4-5+ years. Serve with tuna, salmon and poultry. Hand-picked fruit fully destemmed and given a cold soak, fermented to 13.5% alc., 20% by indigenous yeasts, the wine spending 15-18 days on skins and aged 11 months in French oak, approx. 15% new. 17.5/20 Nov 2012 RRP $35.00
