Terrace Edge Waipara Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 09-May-2011
Made from Abel, 777, 667 115 and 5 clones, planted in 2002, the fruit totally destemmed, given a cold soak and native yeast fermented to 14.0% alc. The wine was then aged for 11 months in 25% new French oak barriques. Bright ruby-red with purple hues and a pale edge to the colour, this has a nose of vibrant, bright dark cherries and raspberry fruits, showing lovely purity and depth, all finely expressed. Medium weighted, the palate is fresh and lively with lifted dark berry and raspberry flavours and good concentration. Tannin extraction is moderate, and the mouthfeel is silky smooth. An elegant wine that will be a match with tuna, duck and pork over the next 4-6 years. 18.0+/20 May 2011 RRP $27.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
