Tiki ‘Estate’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2018

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 11-Dec-2018
Ruby-red colour with some depth, a little lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is elegant in proportion with bright and fresh primary aromas of dark-red cherry fruit entwined with fresh herb notes. This is fruit focussed and uncomplicated, but builds in depth with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate has fresh and lively fruit flavours of spicy dark-red cherries harmoniously melded with subtle notes of dark herbs with lifted red florals. The fruit grows in concentration and is enlivened by refreshing acidity, and the wine flows along a light, grainy-textured line with some underlying alcoholic drive. The wine carries to a cherry-fruited finish. This is a fresh, lively fruit-focussed, dark-red cherry flavoured Pinot Noir with herb nuances on a light, grainy palate. It should put on more weight over the next 2+ years. Serve with tuna and salmon, and with antipasto and tapas. Waipara fruit fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 4-5 months in seasoned French oak. 16.5+/20 Dec 2018 RRP $23.00
