Sherwood Estate ‘Stratum’ Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - South Island
Review Date : 19-Feb-2014
Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour with some light garnet hues on rim. The nose is aromatic with lifted raspberry and strawberry fruits underlined by hints of stalk and dried herbs, the fruit building in depth with cool, sappy elements and a little resinous oak. Medium-light bodied, the palate features raspberry fruit flavours intermixed with sappy, herbal notes. The extraction is light, and with brisk acidity forms a lively, grainy palate line that grows in texture and depth. The flavours lead to a concentrated finish with herbs and raspberries. This is a medium-bodied Pinot Noir with bright fruit and cool, sappy elements, building in depth in the glass. Serve with pasta and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit from selected sites including the Waipara Valley and Nelson, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 14 days on skins and aged 4 months in oak. 16.5/20 Feb 2014 RRP $16.95
