Schubert ‘Marion’s Vineyard’ Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 10-Jun-2018
Moderately dark, deep ruby-red colour, lighter with some garnet hues. The nose is full and gently voluminous with a well-packed core of ripe, dark-red berry fruit harmoniously melded with subtle notes of dark and dried herbs, and dark-red florals, along with a little savoury, earthy complexity. This is beautifully integrated in presentation and shows a positive, deep core. Medium-full bodied, the palate is well-proportioned with a rounded and deep heart of sweetly rich and ripe dark-red berry fruits harmoniously interwoven with dark and dried herbs, red florals and a little earth. The fruit is bright, lively and vibrant, and enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity and underlined by supple, fine-grained tannin extraction. The palate has a positive line with excellent energy and drive, and carries to a sweetly rich, red-fruited and floral nuanced finish. This is a rich and sweet-fruited dark-red berried Pinot Noir with a positive heart, liveliness, supple structure and excellent energy. Match with wild duck and pork over the next 5-6+ years. Clones 5, Abel and 10/5 from ‘Marion’s Vineyard’, East Taratahi, hand-picked, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 3 weeks on skins and aged 18 months on 35% new French oak barriques.
