Stanley Estates ‘Limited Edition’ ‘Single Vineyard’ Awatere Valley Marlborough Lagrein 2015

Other Red from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jun-2017
Very dark, near impenetrable black-red colour with slight garnet hues on the rim. The nose is moderately full and firmly concentrated with good depth of ripe black berry and black cherry fruit along with herbs and black minerals and a hint of chocolate. The aromatics have a fresh, steely edge to the expression. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly concentrated with juicy flavours of ripe black cherry and berry fruit, along with notes of dark herbs and black minerals. The fruit forms an elegant core and is underlined by a fine-grained tannin line, and balanced by fresh acidity lending energy and tension. The wine carries to an elegant, finely concentrated black-fruited, sustained finish. Match with pizza, pork, veal, lamb and beef dishes over the next 3-4 years. The third crop from these vines. Hand-picked, destemmed, and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new oak. 146 dozen made. 17.5+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $27.95
