Te Pa Reserve Westhaven Pinot Noir 2021, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 18-Feb-2024
Moderate deep crimson, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full, with delicate aromas of cherry, blackberry, floral, subtle herbs and pepper berry. Medium-full bodied, aromas of cherry, blackberry and black tea fragrant entwined with herbs, clay and black pepper. The wine is savoury with a broody edge, adorned by herbs and earthy layers. Silky tannins integrated with lacy acidity carried a long, savoury finish. Match with lamb and duck over the next 6+ years. Fruit from Westhaven vineyard in Awatere Valley, handpicked clones 667 and 777, fermented with 22% whole cluster, 6 barrel selection, 33% new oak. Unfined, unfiltered. 14.5% alc. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Feb 2024 RRP $49.95
