Rapaura Springs South Brook Vineyard Pinot Noir 2022, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-Dec-2023
Light ruby-red, slightly lighter on the rim. This has a lifted bouquet packed with red fruit, floral, spice and herb details. Medium-bodied, red cherry and black raspberry aromas entwined with hibiscus, vanilla, black pepper and thyme. The mouthfeel is smooth with supple and silky tannin extraction, reflecting milk chocolate and sweet spices. Lacy acidity flows with good energy and floral details add interest. Match with duck and spork over the next 5+ years. Fruit from Farihall Valley within the Southern Valleys, Dijon clones, handpicked, cold soaked for 7 days, wild fermented with 10% whole bunch, aged 10 months in French oak barriques, 30% new oak. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Dec 2023 RRP $45.90
