Silver Fern Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 15-May-2018
Moderately deep ruby-red with purple hues, lighter on the rim and youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh and elegant in proportion with good depth of up-front dark-red cherry and raspberry fruit along with subtle notes of fresh herbs and dark-red floral elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a gently concentrated core of dark-red cherry fruit and raspberries along with enlivening notes of fresh herbs. The fruit is underlined by light, grainy tannin structure providing fine grip and linearity, with balanced acidity. The flavours carry positively to a lingering finish of raspberry liqueur. This bright, raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir has moderate concentration, with finely balanced structure and grip and good length. Match with poultry, pork, beef and lamb over the next 3+ years. Marlborough fruit undergoing a fast, hot fermentation to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months with oak. 17.0+/20 May 2018 RRP $21.95
