Tiwaiwaka ‘Silver Label’ Martinborough Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 23-Jul-2012
Light, pale, purple-hued ruby-red colour. The nose is light with soft red berry fruit and dark raspberry aromas, and nuances of warm earth and game unfolding. The aromatics retain freshness and are primary in expression. Light-bodied, restrained, but fresh red cherry and raspberry fruit flavours are the feature, with supporting lively acidity. This has good sweetness and juiciness, and the wine reveals some cool, herbal notes. The extraction is modest, but underlines the racy mouthfeel, leading to a crisp, dry finish with light berryish fruit and subtle savoury herb flavours. This is a light, crisp, dry and primary fruited Pinot Noir to serve with charcuterie and antipasto over the next 2-3+ years. 50% 10/5 clone with 5, 115 and Abel in equal proportions, indigenous yeast fermented with approx. 10% whole bunch and a proportion of whole berries to 13.5% alc., the aged in seasoned oak barrels. 16.0-/20 Jul 2012 RPP $25.00
