Te Mania ‘Reserve’ Nelson Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 10-Jul-2011
Light ruby-red colour with a light garnet edge, this has a soft, full bouquet of mushrooms, forest floor and truffles, along with oak spices and cedar, all underlined by aromas of savoury soft red berry fruits. Full-bodied, this has a complex, deeply-flavoured amalgam of earthy red berry fruits, game and mushrooms, enlivened by fresh acidity. The palate is sweet at the core, and supple tannins provide good support, giving the wine a long, lingering, spice-infused finish. Made from clones 115, 777 and 5, fully-destemmed and cold soaked, indigenous yeast fermentation initiated and carried through to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in 40% new French barriques. This will be a wine to drink over the next 4-5+ years with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influenced cuisine. 18.0-/20 Jul 2011 RRP $34.99
