Two Rivers ‘Tributary’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 07-Sep-2015
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full and well packed with aromas of savoury dark raspberry and earthy plum fruit layered with waves of stalky whole cluster complexities, herbs and nuances of undergrowth and minerals. Medium-full bodied, the palate is solidly packed with fulsome flavours of ripe, dark raspberry fruit melded with savoury stalk and earthy whole bunch interest. The palate has underlying fruit sweetness and soft acidity enhances the smooth and mellowness of the fine-grained tannin structure. The palate carries gently to a soft finish with savoury red berry fruit and earthy elements. This is a soft-textured, solidly packed Pinot Noir with savoury raspberry fruit flavours and earthy and herbal whole cluster complexities. Match with mushroom risotto and pasta dishes and with game meat over the next 4-5 years. Clones 115, 667, 777 and 10/5 from the ‘Rive’ Awatere, ‘Francis’ Wairau and ‘Delta Heights’ Southern Valleys vineyards, partially indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole clusters to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 25% new French oak barrels. 900 cases made. 18.0/20 Sep 2015 RRP $35.00
