Sileni Estates ‘Seasonal Release’ Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 20-Oct-2017
Light ruby-red colour with some depth, paler on the rim with slight purple tints. This has a light, but positive nose with aromas of dark-red cherry fruit with nuances of red florals and herbs. The nose is uncomplicated and fruit-focussed. Medium-bodied, the palate has up-front flavours of strawberries and red cherries with soft red floral notes. The flavours are moderately rich and deep, and gently mouthfilling, and the fruit is supported by light, supple tannin structure with soft, integrated acidity. The palate leads to a positive, light, lingering finish of red fruits and herbs. This is an up-front, fruit-focussed Pinot Noir with strawberry, cherry and herb flavours on a light, supple palate. Serve with salmon and tuna, and with antipasto or tapas over the next 3 years. Hawke’s Bay fruit fermented to 12.0% alc., with a small portion given oak contact. 16.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $19.95
