Rapaura Springs Reserve Pinot Noir 2021, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Jul-2022
Deep, dense, ruby-black with a purple core, lighter on the rim. The nose is full and generous, with bright aromas of black cherries and strawberries entwined with soft spice and floral elements. Medium-bodied, aromas of black cherries and strawberries extended by a plummy line of acidity, unfolding thyme, cinnamon, black pepper and cardamom. The fruit is generous and bright, enriched by thyme and an earthy hint. Supple, fine tannin flows along a juicy, lively line of acidity and carries spice to a sustained finish. This appealing Pinot Noir shows bright fruit, spice and thyme with a smooth mouthfeel. Match with braised pork cheek and lamb shoulder over the next 3-5 years. 18/20 pts (90 pts) July 2022 RRP $24.99
