Rapaura Springs Classic Pinot Noir 2022, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Jan-2024
Light ruby-red, even colour throughout. This has a soft bouquet with cherry, blackberry and toasty oak aromas. Medium-light bodied, aromas of black cherry, blackberry, black pepper and roasted coffee beans. The fruit is ripe with balanced acidity; toasty oak provides weight, spice and a light tannin grip for texture. This Pinot Noir is packed with primary fruit and toasty oak elements. Match with BBQ lamb sausages and burgers over the next 2-3 years. The fruit was cold-soaked and fermented with wild and traditional Pinot Noir yeasts to 13% alc, underwent MLF and was oak-aged for 10 months. 17+/20 pts (86 pts) Jan 2024 RRP $19
