Tiki ‘Koro’ Waipara Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 27-Dec-2017
Moderately dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the edge with slight garnet hues. The nose has well-packed, deep and solid aromas of dark-red and black berried fruit melded with a complexing layer of dark herbs, hints of undergrowth, mushrooms and earth. The aromatics are deep and rounded with building intensity. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a solid, concentrated core with deep flavours of dark-red and black berried fruits melded with an amalgam of dark herbs, earth, subtle undergrowth notes. The palate is robust with fine, grainy tannin structure and integrated acidity, lending good depth and presence. The flavours carry to a moderately long and fulsome finish. This is a near-robust, well-packed Pinot Noir with dark-red and black-berried fruit along with savoury herb, earth and undergrowth complexities. Match with game meat dishes and casseroles over the next 6+ years. Waipara Valley fruit indigenous yeast fermented with a portion of whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine on skins for approx. 3 weeks and aged 18 months in French oak. 18.0/20 Dec 2017 RRP $33.00
