Sherwood Estate ‘Stoney Range’ Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 31-Jan-2019
Light, even, ruby-red colour with garnet hues, paler edged with a little bricking. The nose is softly presented with a finely packed core of firm, savoury dark red berry fruit aromas interwoven with a layer of dark herbs and nuances of minerally reduction and nutty oak that emerges with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate has lively flavours of savoury red cherry and berry fruit, along with dark herbs, some nutty oak and reductive elements. The palate has positive line and drive, the tannins soft and restrained, and the acidity balanced. The wine carries to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a medium-weighted Gris with savoury cherry and berry flavours along with herb and reductive notes on a positive palate with balanced acidity. Serve with wild duck and pork over the next 2+ years. Pinot Gris fruit from the company’s ‘Terraces’, ‘Georges Road’, ‘Pilgrim’, ‘Stirling’, ‘Glasnevin’ and ‘Church Road’ vineyards’ fermented to 12.0% alc. and 4.7 g/L RS, the wine aged in oak. 16.5/20 Jan 2019 RRP $19.00
