Sugar Loaf Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-May-2015
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, lighter on rim. This has a fresh and elegantly presented nose with finely concentrated aromas of dark red cherry and berry fruits entwined with subtle herb, earth and black mineral nuances. Medium-full bodied, tightly bound, but succulent fruit flavours of dark red berry fruits show with plum, tamarillo and herb elements, along with toasty oak and minerals. The fruit forms a firm core and line with fine-grained tannins lending structure, and crisp, lively acidity brightening the mouthfeel. The wine carries with linearity to a dry, firm finish. This is an elegant, tightly bound, fresh and firm Pinot Noir with dark red fruit, herb and toasty, minerally flavours. Match with beef and lamb over the next 4+ years. Fruit from a Southern Valleys hill site and a lower Wairau Valley vineyard, fully destemmed and fermented partially by indigenous yeasts to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 10% new French oak. 16.5+/20 May 2015 RRP $25.00
