Tiki ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-Apr-2013
Dark ruby-red colour with black hues at the heart. The nose is softly full with aromas of ripe red berry fruits lifted with whole berry jam and confectionary nuances, and warm, savoury meat and dark herbal elements. Medium-bodied, open and mouthfilling flavours of red berry fruit intermingle with savoury meat and earth notes, along with an amalgam of strawberry jam, dusty earth and some spicy oak hints. The fruit is framed by fine grainy tannin textures with fresh, lively, but balanced acidity. This has good depth and a solid core which carries through to a dry, light and textural finish. This is a full and open Pinot Noir with strawberry jam flavours, dry textures and the acidity to match risotto, pasta and casseroles over the next 3-4+ years. Fruit from the ‘Rewa’ vineyard in the Upper Wairau Valley, destemmed and fermented with whole berries to 12.55% alc. Winemaker: Evan Ward. 17.0+/20 Apr 2013 RRP $25.95
