Schubert ‘Marion’s Vineyard’ Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 03-Dec-2016
Deepish ruby-red, a little lighter edged, youthful colour. The nose is redolent of soft red berry fruits with lifted red florals. This has an attractive purity, unfolding subtle notes of fresh herbs and savoury dried herbs and game from the deep core. The aromatics are very Wairarapa with the savouriness, but beautifully melded and harmonious in presentation. The mouthfeel is vibrant and alive with freshness and vitality, revealing cedary and spicy oak layers that intermix beautifully with the savoury fruit, game, earth and lifted florals. Very fine-grained structure and soft acidity support the flavours and carry the wine to a long and complete finish. This is a beautifully aromatic red-fruited Pinot Noir with layer of spicy oak yet to integrate. The structure is refined. The descriptor ‘feminine’ applies. Clones 5 and Abel with a little 10/5, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 35% new French oak barriques. 19.0-/20 Dec 2016 RRP $48.00
