Schubert ‘Marion’s Vineyard’ Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 30-May-2017
Light ruby-red colour with some depth, paler on edge with some garnet hues. The nose is soft and gently voluminous with aromas of savoury strawberry and dark-red cherry fruit entwined with an array of red florals, dried herb and earthy detail. This has a firm and tight core, showing spice elements. The aromatics are refined and beautiful in expression. Medium-bodied, the palate is gently rich and lusciously sweet with strawberry and red cherry fruit flavours lifted by red florals and complexed by savoury herb and earth nuances. The fruit intensity builds on palate to show liquorice and spices. The palate is near-slippery in flow with fresh acidity and a very finely extracted structure in support. This is balanced and harmonious and carries with good energy and drive, leading to a long and sustained finish of red fruits and spices. This is a beautifully balanced and harmonious Pinot Noir with red fruits and florals, along with savoury herb and spice detail on a slippery, fine-textured palate. Serve with tuna, salmon, poultry and pork over the next 6+ years. Hand-picked clones 5 and Abel with a little 10/5, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 3 weeks on skins and aged 18 months in 35% new French oak barriques. Certified BioGro organic. 18.5+/20 May 2017 RRP $48.00
