SOHO ‘Havana’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-May-2013
Full, very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with slight purple hues. The nose is softly full and voluminous with fragrant aromas of red berry fruits with dark red florals, unfolding notes of savoury plums, pepper and dark herbs. Fullish bodied and fulsome in mouthfeel, soft red berry fruit flavours sit alongside red florals, dark herbs and pepper. The fruit has good richness and is balanced by fine, grainy tannins, with some alcoholic power providing drive. This has a textured and concentrated line that carries to a long finish. The fruit, structure and acidity is in good proportion, and yet to come together, but the rounded textures and underlying firmness through the palate indicate the potential for a wine to develop with plenty of interest over the next 5-6 years. Match with roasted red meats. Fruit from the company’s ‘Yarrum’ vineyard in the Brancott Valley, indigenous yeast fermented to 14.4% alc., the wine aged 11 months in new and seasoned French oak. 17.5+/20 May 2013 RRP $38.00
