Summerhouse Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 19-Dec-2016
Even ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, youthful in appearance. The nose is tightly bound and well concentrated unfolding intense fragrant aromas of dark red cherry and berry fruit along with some minerally reduction. Dark herbs, dark-red and violet florals unfold, along with nuances of red liquorice to add detail. Medium-full bodied, the palate is tightly bound with finely proportioned, but intense flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruits along with soft notes of dark herbs, spices and liquorice. The fruit is enlivened by fresh, piquant acidity and the wine is carried along a fine-grained tannin line, the structure providing support. This has good linearity, and the wine leads to a bright, energetic and vibrant finish with dark cherry and liquorice notes. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with intense dark cherry fruit, and spices and liquorice nuances, along with fresh acidity and fine tannin structure. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 4-5+ years. Fruit from the Southern Valleys fermented with 6% whole bunches and a portion of whole berries to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 22% new French oak barriques. 18.0/20 Dec 2016 RRP $35.90
