Tohu ‘Young Vine’ Nelson Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 22-Jun-2011
Abel, 115 and 777 clone fruit from the newly bearing ‘Whenua Matua' estate vineyard on clay soils in the Upper Moutere, Nelson. Given a cold soak and wild yeast fermentation initiated and carried through to 13.0% alc., the wine then aged 12 months in new and seasoned French oak barrels. Light ruby-red colour with a light edge and some purple hues. This has a full, open and up-front nose of strawberries and raspberries with some dried herb notes along with some resin-like oak. A light and fresh, lively wine on palate, this has a good core of luscious and juicy fruit, showing raspberry and fennel flavours along with tannin grip and acidity providing a robustness. The wine finishes on its extraction, with moderate length. Drink over the next 2-4 years with antipasto, firm flesh seafood and poultry. 16.0-/20 Jun 2011 RRP $21.95
