Te Kairanga Martinborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 20-Nov-2016
Dark, even ruby-red colour with lighter purple hues on the rim. The nose is fresh with moderately deep, bright and fragrant aromas of dark red cherry and berry fruit interwoven with fresh and dark herb notes, some nutty oak, unfolding dark-red and violet floral elements. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in presentation with up-front, fruit-focussed aromas of vibrant and bright dark red cherries and berries, entwined with subtle notes of fresh herb and lifted dark-red florals. The mouthfeel is lively with fresh, lacy acidity and fine, grainy tannins providing structure and line. The wine carries to a lingering finish with fresh cherry and floral elements. This is a bright and lively, fruit-focussed Pinot Noir with flavours of dark-red cherries and berries, with herbal and floral detail on a grainy-textured palate. Serve with antipasto, tapas, poultry and pork dishes over the next 4+ years. Clones Abel, 777, 667, 5, 6, 115, 114, 113 and 10/5 from the ‘Home’, ‘Spring Rock’ and ‘Rua’ vineyards, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak barrels. 18.0-/20 Nov 2016 RRP $28.00
