Pukeora ‘Ruahine Range’ Central Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 04-Jul-2017
Even garnet-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. This has an elegantly concentrated and intense nose with finely presented aromas of savoury dark-red berry and cherry fruit, along with a harmonious layer of dried herbs, red florals and a little nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, the fruit is fine in proportion showing flavours of savoury red cherries along with red florals, dried herbs and subtle notes of nutty oak. The fruit is moderately sweet and is supported by light, grainy tannin extraction with balanced acidity. Some alcohol power carries the wine to a slender finish of red fruits and florals. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with savoury red cherry fruit , florals and dried herbs on a light, grainy palate. Serve with duck and pork dishes over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit, fully destemmed, partially crushed and fermented to 13.7% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 40% new French oak barriques. 16.5+/20 Jul 2017 RRP $28.00
