Sherwood Estate ‘Sherwood’ Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 30-May-2018
Moderately dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim with youthful purple hues. The nose is elegant in presentation with fresh aromas of dark-red cherry and raspberry fruit entwined with a layering of fresh and dark herbs. The aromas form a tight core unfolding hints of minerals with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate is fresh and bright with lively fruit flavours of cherries and raspberries, along with some subtle herbal notes. The flavours form a positive core showing concentration, and the fruit is underlined by youthfully grainy tannins. The mouthfeel is enlivened by fresh, crisp acidity and the wine carries with good linearity to a lingering finish of raspberries. This is a fresh and lively, vibrantly fruited Pinot Noir with cherry and raspberry fruit along with some herbal notes on a grainy-textured, crisp palate. Match with tuna, salmon, duck and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from the ‘Pilgrim’. ‘Glasnevin’, ‘Georges Road’, ‘Stirling’, ‘Terraces’ and ‘Church Road’ vineyards, indigenous yeast fermented to 11.5% alc., the wine on skins for 21 days and aged 9 months in barrel. 17.5-/20 May 2018 RRP $21.99
