Two Rivers ‘Tributary’ Marlborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 12-Oct-2018
Dark-hearted ruby-red colour with slight garnet hues on the edge. The nose is beautifully fragrant with gently voluminous aromas of lifted red florals and dark-red berry fruits and subtle notes of herbs. This has a firm core with concentration, unfolding aromatic detail with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate is gently and subtly expressed with restrained flavours of red florals and red berry fruits harmoniously entwined with subtle notes of herbs and an array of floral elements. The fruit has richness at the core and is enlivened by fresh acidity, and supported by elegant, fine-grained tannin structure. The aromatics are the feature and fill the palate. The wine carries softly to an elegant fragrant finish. This is a beautifully fragrant Pinot Noir with red berry fruits, fresh herbs and an array of florals in a fine-textured palate with fresh acidity. Match with poultry and pork, and with Asian fare over the next 5+ years. Fruit from ‘Brookby Bill’, clones 115, 667, 777, 10/5 and Abel, hand-picked, partially destemmed and 50% indigenous yeast fermented with 30% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 25% new French oak. 1,100 cases made. 18.5-/20 Oct 2018 RRP $36.00
