Riverby Estate Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 06-Apr-2015
Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour, lighter on rim. This has a full and aromatic nose of fresh dark raspberry and plum fruit intermixed with liquorice and layers of dark red florals and soft herbs. The oaking is subtle and sensitive, and the nose has suggestions of pepper and a touch of reduction. Medium-bodied, rich and juicy dark raspberry flavours are entwined with spices, liquorice and herbs, and lifted by floral elements. The mouthfeel is vibrant and lively with fresh, lacy acidity and a fine tannin line in support. The palate is elegant in proportion and flows with vitality to a long spicy finish with berry fruit flavours. This is a vibrant and sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with raspberry and spicy flavours, and a finely structured palate. Match with poultry, pork and Asian fare over the next 5-6 years. Clones 114, 115, 667, 777 and 5 from the ‘Riverby’ vineyard, vines 8-22 y.o., fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in approx. 25% new oak. 18.0+/20 Apr 2015 RRP $27.00
