Terrace Edge Waipara Valley St Laurent 2016

Other Red from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 31-Dec-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued purple-red colour, lighter on the rime, very youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh, full and voluminous with ripe and plush, primary fruit aromas of dark-red and blue berried fruits along with an intriguing amalgam of violet florals, game notes, spices and subtle game suggestions. Medium-bodied, the palate has sweetly rich and succulent primary fruit flavours of dark-red and blueberries, alongside violet florals, jam and savoury spices. The fruit is supported by fine-grained, supple tannins and integrated acidity lending a soft, accessible mouthfeel. The flavours carry through to a plush finish with blueberry jam and violet notes. This is an up-front, crowd-pleasing, sweetly ripe St Laurent with flavours of dark-red and blueberry fruit along with jam, herb and violet notes, on a very accessible palate. Match with wild pork and game meat dishes, and Middle Eastern fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine spending approx. 3 weeks on skins post ferment and aged 11 months in 1 and 2 y.o. barrels. 50 dozen made. 18.0/20 Apr 2017 RRP $34.00 Cellar Door Only Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
