Tinpot Hut Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 14-Mar-2012
Light ruby-red colour, with light purple hues on rim. Bright raspberry fruit aromas intermingle with hints of fresh herbs and minerally notes on the nose, the expression is clear and up-front. Medium-bodied, this is an elegantly proportioned wine with tight and deeply intense flavours of dark raspberry liqueur and fresh herbs. Moderate extraction, supple tannins and bright acidity allows the fruit come to the fore. The palate has linear drive, leasing to a soft-textured, gentle finish with oak spices and red fruits. This is an elegant, raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir with good line. Match with poultry and pork over the next 3-4+ years. Fruit from sites at Conders Bend in the Upper Wairau and Blind River in the Awatere, destemmed and given a cold soak and fermented to 13.2% alc. A portion of the blend was aged in new and seasoned French oak barrels, the remainder aged in stainless-steel. 17.0+/20 Mar 2012 RRP $29.95
