SOHO ‘White Collection’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 05-Aug-2013
Even ruby-red colour, moderately deep. This has a gentle and harmonious bouquet with aromas of fragrant, dark red berry fruits intermingling with dark herb, fennel and pepper. Medium-bodied, this is tight and slender on palate with bright and lush fruit flavours of dark red berries, florals and dark herbs forming a good concentrated core. Oaking is sensitively balanced and unobtrusive. Fresh and racy acidity underlines the fruit, adding sweetness to the fruit expression, and light tannin extraction is in support, guiding the palate to a lingering, lively-fruited finish. This is a fresh and racy Pinot Noir with lush and bright fruit. Match with fir-flesh seafood, pasta and poultry dishes over the next 3-4+ years. Fruit from the Awatere and Brancott Valleys fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in new and seasoned French oak. 17.5/20 Aug 2013 RRP $27.00
