Sacred Hill Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 20-Mar-2014
Marlborough fruit given a cold soak and fermented in open top vats to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in French oak barrels and tank. Dark, deep purple-hued ruby-red colour, youthful in appearance. The nose is soft and gently full, with evenly presented aromas of ripe raspberry and cherry fruits, along with delicate herbal interest and subtle oaking. The bouquet unfolds some raspberry pastille elements and become more voluminous in glass. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft and harmonious with gentle red cherry and ripe raspberry fruit flavours that flow smoothly. The fruit is a little restrained, and sits on a fine-textured line with good acid vitality that leads to a mellow, soft finish. This is a soft, smooth and harmonious, raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir. Serve with Asian poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. 17.0+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $19.99
