Teitei Pinot Noir 2020, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Jan-2022
Bright, light ruby-red, even colour throughout. The nose is voluminously out of the glass with an elegant expression, savoury aromas of earthy clay, slightly meaty expression melded with cherries, ripe raspberries and a hint of pepper and blossom. Medium-light bodied, vibrant raspberries, red cherries nuances tamed by earth, a touch of black pepper dust and pretty floral essence. The mouthfeel is ethereal and silky; supple tannin coated the palate with a thin veil reminiscent of ash and fine clay. Acidity is lacy, supporting a lively drive and dusty pepper lingers for a long, elegant finish. This is a delicate, enticing Pinot Noir with excellent balance and elegance. Match with roasted quail and pork rillette over 3-5 years. Wild fermented to 12.2% alc, unfined, unfiltered. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Jan 2022 RRP $29.90
