Te Kairanga Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 26-Aug-2018
Even, light garnet-hued ruby-red colour, paler edged. The nose is softly full and easy with accessible aromas of strawberries entwined with fresh herb notes and soft red florals. The aromatics are fresh and uncomplicated and are situated in the cooler spectrum. Medium-bodied, the palate has softly rich and luscious flavours of savoury strawberries with fresh and dark herbs and lifted red florals. The flavours form a softly concentrated core with fine, grainy tannins lending dry structure and light acidity which initially enlivens the palate, then carries structure and grip. The flavours of strawberries and herbs lead to a lingering finish. This is a softly rich and textured Pinot Noir with cooler-spectrum strawberry and herbal flavours with some acid freshness. Match with poultry and pork over the next 3 years. Fruit from the ‘Rua’, ‘Fraters’, ‘Spring Rock’ and ‘Home’ vineyards, clones Abel, 5, 6, 777, 667, 114, 113, 115 and 10/5, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak. 6,025 dozen made. 16.5/20 Aug 2018 RRP $28.00
