Te Whare Ra ‘Single Vineyard 5182’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Dec-2018
Even, dark-hued garnet-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is soft and fragrant with ethereal aromas of soft-red cherry fruit with nuances of black-berried fruits at the core, unfolding an array of dark-red florals with a subtle complexing amalgam of dark and dried herbs. The aromatics are harmoniously presented. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly proportioned with sweetly rich flavours of soft red berry fruits and nuances of black fruits, with dark and dried herbs and an array of red florals. The fruit is luscious and enlivened by fine, lacy acidity and supported by a very finely extracted and structured line that carries the wine to a lingering, ethereal finish. This is a very elegant, but lusciously rich red cherry and dark-berried Pinot Noir with ethereal florals on a fine-structured palate with fresh, lacy acidity. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 5+ years. The second release of a Pinot Noir under the ‘SV 5182’ designation. A blend of 8 clones, 113, 114, 115, 667, 777, 10/5, Abel and 5 from the TWR ‘’Home’ block, the fruit hand-picked and hand-sorted, destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 10-14 days on skins post-ferment and aged 11 months in 30% new French oak. 129 cases made. Certified BioGro organic. 18.5+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $75.00
