Saint Clair Pioneer Block 5 Pinot Noir 2021, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 04-Jan-2024
Deep ruby-red with a black hue, even colour throughout. This has a rich, deeply aromatic bouquet with penetrating black cherry, plum, thyme, earth and allspice aromas. Medium-full bodied, aromas of black cherry and plum have a dense core, interweaved with rosehip, thyme, cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper and a hint of earthy clay. The wine shows concentration and depth of flavours. Lacy acidity carries a velvety, dusty tannin grip to an elegant finish. This Pinot Noir possesses depth and weight of ripe fruit with complex layers and a velvety mouthfeel. Match with roasted lamb and duck over the next 8+ years. Fruit from Bull Block vineyard, fermented to 13.5% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Jan 2024 RRP $40
