Sorrell Churton Pinot Noir 2022, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Dec-2023
Light ruby-red, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and pretty, with aromas of strawberry, cherry, blackberry, floral fragrance and sweet spices. Medium-light bodied, aromas of strawberry and cherry entwined with blackberry, unfolding rose petals, hibiscus, cinnamon and pepper spices. The whole bunch elements contribute to floral fragrance layers. The dusty tannin lightly coats the palate in silk; lacy acidity flows effortlessly to a delicate finish. Match with roasted quail and tuna steak over the next 8+ years. Clone 777, handpicked, fermented in open-top fermenters with 20% whole bunch, inoculated with yeast from Churton vineyard, 21 days on skins, ages 14 months in old French oak, underwent spring MLF. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Dec 2023 RRP $49
