Spy Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Jun-2015
Dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on edge. This has a fresh, aromatic nose of ripe dark raspberry fruit melded with toasty oak, and lifted by fresh herbs and red floral perfumes. Raspberry liqueur, plums, liquorice and spice elements emerge with aeration. Medium-bodied, the fruit flavours are initially restrained, but open up in richness and juiciness. Dark raspberries, red cherries and savoury plum flavours unfold. The mouthfeel is supple, with underlying tannins and structure lending good body and palate presence. Nuances of herbs, liquorice and raspberry liqueur grow and are carried with good alcoholic power and drive to a soft, well-concentrated finish. This is a rounded Pinot Noir with sweet raspberry and plum flavours, and good mouthfeel and presence. Match with poultry, pork and lamb dishes over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ’Johnson Estate’ and ‘Outpost’ vineyards, hand-picked and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in oak. 17.5/20 Jun 2015 RRP $30.00
