Staete Landt ‘State of Grace’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Oct-2016
Light ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. This has a softly ethereal nose subtly detailed aromatics showing dark-red berry fruits entwined with red florals, and fresh and dark herbs. The nose builds to for a concentrated core, and notes of red liquorice and spices emerge with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate has fine features with bright and lively, aromatic red berry fruit lifted by red florals, subtle notes of herbs and spices with red liquorice elements. The mouthfeel shows fine tannin extraction and textures, balanced by refined acidity. The wine has linearity and elegance, and carries to a long, lingering finish of sweet and aromatic red fruits. This is an elegant, fine-featured, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with red florals and subtle notes of herbs and liquorice. Match with poultry and pork over the next 5+ years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 777, 114, 115 and 5, from 18 y.o. vines, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermentation initiated to 13.0% alc., with 30% whole berries, the wine aged 14 months in 25% new French oak barriques. 18.0-/20 Oct 2016 RRP $35.00
