Rapaura Springs Limestone Terrace Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Sep-2022
Deep ruby-red with black core, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full, slightly retrained, with plum and cherry aromas entwined with red floral, herb and a subtle hint of flint. Medium-bodied, aromas of cherry and young plum interweave with hibiscus, orange pith, thyme and minerals. Medicinal herb elements linger at the closing. The mouthfeel is chalky with finely extracted tannins and minerals; a light grip provides structure. Crunchy acidity carries flavours across the palate and lends a long, fragranced finish. This fragrant Pinot Noir shows bright fruit, floral and herb elements adorn with orange pith and a crunchy mineral line. Match with smoked duck breast and game over the next 6+ years. Handpicked, cold-soaked for 5 days, wild fermented with 17% whole bunches to 13.5% alc, aged 10 months in French oak, 30% new oak. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $45.90
