Tohu ‘Single Vineyard’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 16-Oct-2017
Even, light ruby-red colour, pale on the edge. The nose is soft and light with aromas of dark strawberry and cherry fruit, harmoniously integrated with soft notes of dark herbs, red florals and hints of nutty oak. Medium-bodied, the palate has light, aromatic fruit flavours of strawberries and dark-red cherries intermingling with soft herbal notes and lifted red florals, forming a softly packed heart. The mouthfeel is rounded with light, supple tannin extraction and lacy acidity lending a lively, fine-textured palate with a little grip. The wine leads to a gently full finish of red fruits and florals with subtle herb nuances. This is a moderately fruity Pinot Noir with strawberry, cherry and herb flavours and a light, fine-textured palate. Match with tuna and salmon, poultry and pork over the next 3+ years. Fruit from the company’s Upper Awatere Valley vineyard, destemmed and fermented partially with indigenous yeasts to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in new and seasoned French oak barriques. 16.5/20 Oct 2017 RRP $27.95
