Stoneleigh ‘Latitude’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 10-Sep-2011
Full ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, this has a softly full nose of redcurrants and red berry fruits with gentle layers of boiled sweets and milk chocolate that unfold in the glass. Medium-weighted, spicy, cedary oak flavours and acidity come to the fore, followed by spicy red berry fruits, chocolate elements and dried herbs. The moderately extracted tannins form a fine-textured palate that becomes dry on the finish. Clone 10/5, 5, 667 and 777 from the Rapaura region destemmed and given a cold soak, fermented to 13.9% alc., the wine aged 8 months in 30% new French oak barriques. Moderately weighty with acidity and dry spicy oak, match this with Middle Eastern food over the next 3-4 years.  Sep 2011 RRP $26.99
