Trinity Hill Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 25-May-2016
Moderately dark ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is fresh and upfront with vibrant primary fruit aromas of dark red berry and cherry fruit with notes of redcurrants and subtle herbal and whole bunch stalk elements. The aromatic build to form a tight core. Medium-bodied, the palate features bright, lively and juicy fruit flavours of dark red berry cherry and redcurrant fruit with notes of dark raspberries and herbs. The mouthfeel is plush and sweet, and the palate is supported by light tannin extraction and fresh, lively acidity. The flavours recede as the wine floes to a lingering, light finish of cherries and redcurrants. This is a bright and lively, up-front, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with some grainy structure and a fresh mouthfeel. Match with poultry, pork and antipasto over the next 3+ years. Clone Abel, 115, 667, 777 and MV6 from the ‘inland ‘Esprit’ and ‘Mangaorapa Station’ sites, fermented with approx. 25% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 9 months in barriques and stainless-steel tanks. 17.0+/20 May 2016 RRP $22.00
