Russian Jack Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 30-Aug-2018
Light red colour with a little garnet on the rim. The nose is softly full with good depth and weight of dark-red berry fruit along with nuances of raspberries, dark and fresh herbs, unfolding a little liquorice, plums and spices. Medium-bodied, the palate has light strawberry fruit flavours with soft notes of cherries and raspberries, plums and herbs, forming upfront flavours and a soft core. The flavours show some richness and juiciness, and is underlined by light, grainy tannin extraction and soft acidity. The flavours fade a little as they carry to the finish. This is a light, fragrant Pinot Noir with strawberry, cherry and raspberry fruit on a light, grainy palate. Match with antipasto, poultry and pork dishes over the next 2+ years. Fruit from the ‘Rua’ and ‘Fraters’ vineyards, Martinborough, clones mainly 777, 115, 667, with some Abel and 10/5, fermented to 13.0% alc., 82% of the wine aged 10 months in 8% new oak. 16.5+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $24.99
