Sherwood Estate ‘Stratum’ Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - South Island
Review Date : 06-Apr-2016
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with good depth and concentration of dark red berry and black cherry fruit aromas harmoniously entwined with dark herb elements and subtle nuances of liquorice and spice. Medium-bodied, the palate features sweet and plush dark red berry and plum fruit flavours softly melded with subtle dark herbal notes. The mouthfeel is bright and juicy, enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, and the fruit supported by light, supple tannins. A soft, textural core and line carries the wine to a moderately long, sweet-fruited finish. This is a plush and juicy, sweet, dark-fruited Pinot Noir with a lively mouthfeel and light, supple textures. Match with pasta, risotto and poultry dishes over the next 3-4 years. Pinot Noir fruit from the Waipara Valley and Marlborough, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine on skins for an average of 21 days, the wine aged 4 months in oak. 17.0/20 Apr 2016 RRP $18.95
