Terra Nova Gladstone Wairarapa Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 05-May-2011
The second label for Cottier Estate, named after Antarctic explorer Captain Scott's ship used for the 1910-1913 expedition. Fermented to 13.5% alc., aged in French oak. Light purple-hued ruby red, youthful in appearance, this has a softly full nose of dark berry fruits with good depth. Some dried herb notes add interest. On palate medium-bodied with bright dark cherry and berry fruit flavours along with a little jam and spicy cinnamon-like oak and ripe liquorice elements. Moderately sweet, the tannin extraction provides good backbone and a dryness to the palate and finish. The acidity is soft and in the background. This is an upfront Pinot Noir with good primary fruit to match pizza and Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 3-5 years. 17.0+/20 May 2011 RRP $22.45
