Trinity Hill Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 26-Jun-2014
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour. This has a firm nose with an amalgam of savoury dark red berry fruit entwined with red floral and dried herb aromas, and a little complexing minerally reduction adding piquant detail. Medium-bodied, moderately deep, sweet flavours of red and black berry fruits, dark red flowers, herbs and earthy minerals are well-integrated and supported by grainy, sinewy tannins providing a textured mouthfeel. The palate has bright, lively, underlying acidity that carries the wine to a long, lingering finish. This is a lively, dark-fruited Pinot Noir with light, sinewy tannin structure. Match with pasta, poultry and pork over the next 3+ years. Clones Abel, 115, 667, 777 and 6, from the inland and southern ‘Esprit’, ‘Mangaorapa’ and ‘Oban Station’ sites, fermented with 20% whole bunches with foot-stomping to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 8 months in barriques and tank. 16.5+/20 Jun 2014 RRP $20.00
