Stanley Estates ‘Limited Edition’ ‘Single Vineyard’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Lagrein 2014

Other Red from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 08-Jun-2015
The first commercial harvest of Lagrein. Hand-picked fruit destemmed and fermentation initiated with indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 month in 10% new oak. Ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter edged. The nose is elegant and fresh with up-front fruit-focussed aromas of cherry essence, raspberries and tamarillos infused with herbs and pepper, lifted by red floral notes. Medium-bodied, bright, fresh and juicy flavours of cherries and raspberries are entwined with herbs and pepper. The fruit is up-front and primary in expression, supported by soft and supple tannins and enlivened by mouthwatering acidity. The wine leads to an elegant, lingering finish of cherries and herbs. This is a refreshing, bright, juicy and elegant Lagrein with cherry and herbal flavours and soft tannins. Serve with pasta, beef salad and Mediterranean fare over the next 3+ years. 226 dozen made. 16.5/20 May 2015 RRP $26.50
