Rapaura Springs Classic Pinot Noir 2020, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 23-Sep-2022
Bright, moderately deep ruby-red, even colour throughout. The nose is soft and elegant, packed with aromas of black cherry, blackberry, dark herbs and a hint of pepper. Light-bodied, brisk aromas of black cherry and blackberry melded with thyme and black pepper dusting. Supple tannin contributes to a smooth textured mouthfeel; lively acidity carries to a moderate finish with savoury elements. This dark-fruited Pinot Noir flows with vibrant acidity on a smoothly textured palate. Match with barbeque lamb sausage and pork over the next 2-3 years. The fruit was cold-soaked, fermented with wild and traditional yeasts to 13% alc, oak aged for 9 months. 17+/20 pts (86 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $25
