Tohu ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 13-Aug-2013
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with soft, youthful purple hues. The nose is softly full with deep aromas of ripe dark berry and plum fruits, lifted with whole berry raspberry liqueur and floral notes. A little earth and dried herb interest unfolds in the glass. Medium-bodied, the fruit expression is a little subdued and soft, showing red berries, earth and fresh herb flavours. Grainy tannins provide a full, structured mouthfeel, and along with restrained acidity, results in dry textures, which carry through to the finish. This is a softly flavoured, densely weighted and dry textured Pinot Noir. Match with rich pasta and casseroles over the next 4+ years. Mainly clones 667, 777 and 5 from four blocks from the company’s Awatere vineyard, hand-picked and destemmed, given a cold soak and fermented naturally to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 22% new French oak. 17.5/20 Aug 2013 RRP $27.95
