Tincan ‘Cult Crimson’ 2016

Blended Red from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 23-Nov-2017
Moderately deep ruby red colour with slight garnet hues, lighter on the rim, and a little cloudy. The nose is elegant in proportion with softly packed and dense aromas of savoury strawberry fruit harmoniously melded with herbs and earth, a little nuttiness and subtle complexing stalk nuances. Medium-bodied the palate has flavours of savoury strawberries with herb notes, stalk nuances and earth. The flavours are gently mouthfilling and supported by grainy tannin extraction with fresh lacy acidity providing energy. The extraction and zestiness carry the wine to a lingering, savoury red fruited and herb-flavoured finish. This is a well-proportioned Pinot Noir-based red with savoury strawberry, herb, stalk and earthy flavours on a grainy-textured, lively palate. Match with herb-marinated poultry and pork dishes over the next 3-4 years. A blend of 65% Pinot Noir carbonic fermented, with 20% Syrah and 15% Pinot Gris. 11.5% alc. 16.0+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $33.00
