Te Whare Ra Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Nov-2015
Moderately dark ruby-red colour with light purple hues on the rim. This has a very tight and elegantly proportioned nose of dark red cherry fruit with subtle notes of dark herbs and dark red florals, unfolding nuances of minerally detail. This is still youthfully bound and will unfold more from the core. Medium-full bodied, this is elegantly concentrated and slender in presentation, with flavours of dark red cherry and raspberry fruit. Some subtle herbal notes add interest, and soft red florals add lift. The palate core is sweet and rich, and supported by fine-grained, firm tannin extraction lending a taut and sinewy line and mouthfeel. This has good acid freshness and linearity, and the wine carries the dark cherry, herb and mineral notes to a long finish with spice elements. This is an elegant, taut Pinot Noir with cherry fruit flavours and sinewy mouthfeel. It will develop greater richness and complexity over the next 5-6 years. Serve with duck, pork and lamb.
