TerraVin ‘Eaton Family Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 24-Jun-2018
Dark garnet-red colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim with a hint of bricking. The bouquet is soft and gently full with harmoniously and seamlessly interwoven aromas of red berry fruits along with subtle notes of dried herbs and fragrant red florals. Some undergrowth and mushroom secondary complexities unfold. The aromatics show finesse, elegance and pretty, fragrant lift. Medium-bodied, the palate has a soft and lush, sweet core of red berry fruits along with complexing secondary dried herbs entwined with lifted red florals. A little undergrowth and mushroom detail adds to the interest. The fruit sweetness and richness is underlined by soft, fine-grained tannin extraction and structure, and the mouthfeel is soft and supple in texture. The wine carries smoothly to a gentle, lingering finish. This is a smooth, sweetly luscious Pinot Noir with savoury red fruits and dried herb notes with fragrant red florals on a supple palate. This is beginning to drink at its best. Serve with wild duck and pork over the next 3+ years. Clones 667 and 777 from the ‘Eaton Family Vineyard’, from vines planted in 1998 and 1999, fruit fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 16 months in 28% new oak. 18.5+/20 Jun 2018 RRP $80.00
