Trinity Hill Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 29-Mar-2012
Moderately deep purple-hued ruby-red colour, lighter on edge. This has a softly full, fresh, primary bouquet of dark raspberry fruit with confectionary and fermentation esters lift, the aromas up-front and open. Medium-bodied, soft, juicy and sweet raspberry fruit and bon bon flavours show on impact, with lifted floral whole berry characters adding to the aromatic character. The acidity is discreet. Moderate extraction and grip is present, leading to a firm, dry finish with a textural thread and light fruitiness. Clones DRC, 10/5, 115, 667 and 777 from three vineyards in the hills south of the Heretaunga Plains fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged on average 6 months in French oak barriques. Youthful and primary fruited, the wine has a firmness on palate that will soften over the next 3+ years. Serve with pizza, pasta and barbecued foods. 16.5+/20 Mar 2012 RRP $22.00
