Tupari Awatere Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 28-Jul-2014
The second release of a Tupari Pinot Noir. Clone 777 from clay bound gravel soils, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak barriques. Dark, deep hearted ruby-red colour, lighter on rim. This has a soft, open and bright fruited nose of dark red berry fruits with a gentle underlay of herbs and coolish stalk elements. Attractive red florals emerge in the glass. Medium-bodied, lush and succulent red berry fruits feature on the palate, with some herbal nuances alongside red floral notes. The mouthfeel is supple with soft tannin extraction and fresh, lacy acidity enlivening a moderately concentrated core with some firmness and good linearity. The wine carries through to a dry, tight, lingering finish. This is a supple and succulent dark red fruited Pinot Noir with a soft herbal underlay and a dry line. Match with risotto, pasta and poultry dishes over the next 4+ years. 17.5/20 Jul 2014 RRP $35.00
