Te Maire Rise Martinborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 01-Dec-2011
Dijon clone fruit from vines planted in 2000 destemmed and fermented with inoculated yeasts to 12.5% alc. The wine spent 15 days on skins then racked to seasoned French oak for 8 months maturation. Dark, deepish ruby-red colour with some youthful purple hues, this has a fresh, attractively aromatic nose of bright and fragrant dark red berry and cherry fruits with hints of violets, spices and herbs. Medium-weighted, fresh, primary red berry and cherry flavours show with elevated acidity lending a zesty, racy and crisp mouthfeel. The extraction is moderate and the tannins light and supple. Oaking is balanced and subtly enhances the fruit sweetness. This is a clean, bright fruited, pretty and zesty wine that will match salmon, tuna, mushroom risotto and creamy pasta dishes over the next 3+ years. 16.5+/20 Dec 2011 RRP $25.00
