Tohu ‘Rore Reserve’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 29-Sep-2018
Full, even, dark ruby-red colour, a little lighter edged with slight purple tints. The nose is initially restrained in expression, but well-packed with dense aromas of ripe, dark-red berry fruit with hints of plums and spices, unfolding some dark herb and dark-red floral notes. This is harmonious and integrated. Medium bodied, the palate is rich and luscious with soft, ripe fruit flavours of dark-red berry fruit with notes of plums entwined with spices, herbs and earth. The fruit has very good depth and presence and is supported by fine-grained tannin structure and flowery grip, with soft acidity in the background. This has good proportion and carries to a soft, lingering, nuanced finish. This is a soft and layered Pinot Noir with gently expressed flavours of berryfruit and plums, with spices and herbs on a fine-structured palate. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 5 years. A single vineyard wine, hand-picked fruit from the Awatere Valley, destemmed and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 13 months in 20% new French oak barriques. 18.5-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $35.05
