Seifried Nelson Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 30-Jan-2017
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with some garnet on the rim. The nose is elegantly proportioned with a well-packed core of dark-red berry fruits and suggestions of black cherries melded with dried herbs, some nutty oak and a little earthy detail. Medium-bodied, the palate has a rounded heart of dark-red strawberry fruit along with savoury dried herbs and a subtle layering of nutty oak and earthy elements. The palate has good density and light, grainy tannin grip, with ripe acidity balancing the fruit. The wine flows to a dry-textured finish with savoury red fruits and nutty oak. This is a well-packed savoury strawberry and herb flavoured Pinot Noir with a grainy tannin line. Match with poultry, pork and casseroles over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the ’Brightwater’ vineyard from vines nearing 20 y.o., destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques. 16.5-/20 Feb 2017 RRP $17.00
