Spinyback Nelson Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 06-May-2013
Ruby-red colour with garnet hues, pale on rim. The bouquet is light with soft, savoury red berry fruit aromas along with lifted red florals and harmoniously interwoven notes of dried herbs, mushrooms and game. Medium-bodied, the favours are a little shy in expression, showing savoury red fruits, dried herbs and savoury game with spice notes. There is a lusciousness and sweet spiciness to the core which is enlivened by fresh acidity. Open and accessible, the textures are soft, the extraction supple and modest, but there is good presence and the flavours open out, being carried to a spicy, red-fruited finish with some length. This is a light flavoured Pinot Noir with a lively mouthfeel and approachability and subtle richness. Serve with pasta, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. Fruit with a high portion of whole berries, given a cold soak and fermented in ‘Ganimede’ tanks to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in oak. 16.5+/20 May 2013 RRP $19.00
