Stanley Estates ‘Block 8’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 30-Sep-2016
Ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the edge with slight purple hues. The bouquet is softly full and voluminous with aromas of dark red strawberry and red cherry fruit, unfolding a layer of red florals and subtly melded dark herb detail. The aromas are harmoniously entwined. Medium-full bodied, the palate is soft, rounded and harmoniously presented with gently mouthfilling flavours of dark red berry fruits along with soft red florals and nuances of dark herbs and spice. The mouthfeel is smooth and very finely structured with refined tannin extraction and integrated acidity. The palate builds in presence and leads to a full, sustained, fine textured finish of red fruits and florals with spice detail. This is a softly full, harmonious, red berry fruits and red florals with refined tannins. Match with poultry and pork over the next 5 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 667 and 777, indigenous yeast ferment initiated then inoculated, to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak barriques. 650 dozen made. 18.0-/20 Sep 2016 RRP $27.95
