te Pa Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Feb-2018
Light ruby-red colour with a little depth, pale edged with hints of purple. The nose is fine in proportion with taut aromas of bitter red cherry fruit along with subtle notes of raspberries and red liquorice, melded with nutty oak at the core. Delicate herbal elements add detail. Medium-bodied, the palate has a concentrated core of red cherry fruit with subtle herbal nuances and whole bunch elements, unfolding liquorice and nutty oak. The fruit has good depth and is supported by fine-grained tannin structure with balanced acid tension. The wine carries to a moderately sustained finish. This is an elegantly proportioned Pinot Noir with red cherry, herb and nutty oak flavours with balanced structure and freshness. Serve with wild duck and pork dishes over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Omaka North’ vineyard, clones 667 and 115, and fermented with 10-30% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 7-15 days on skins post ferment and aged 10 months in 25% new French oak. 17.5-/20 Feb 2018 RRP $29.95
