Te Kairanga Martinborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 02-Feb-2016
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter edged. This has a well-concentrated nose of ripe dark-red cherry and berry fruit with an integrated amalgam of liquorice, herbs and spices, lifted by violet florals and some peppery elements. Medium-bodied and elegant in proportion, the palate features rich and sweet fruit flavours of dark cherry and berry fruit entwined with herbs, spices and violet florals, forming a positive core and line. The fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and integrated acidity which carries the wine to an aromatic, lingering finish of violet florals and spices. This is an elegantly concentrated, fine-structured Pinot Noir with rich cherry and berry fruit, along with layers of herbs and spices. Serve with poultry and pork dishes over the next 5+ years. Clones Abel, 777, 667, 5, 6, 115, 114, 113 and 10/5 from the ‘Home’ and ‘McLeod’ vineyards, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak barrels. 18.5/20 Feb 2016 RRP $28.00
