Two Rivers Tributary Pinot Noir 2019, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 10-Jun-2021
Medium ruby with a purple hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is gentle and elegant, with alluring aromas of black cherries, plum hints interweave dried thyme, black tea, vanilla and subtle floral fragrance. Medium-full bodied, elegantly presented, concentrated aromas of black cherries, plums are fragranced, melded with black tea, thyme, white floral and spices. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy; floralness lingered to a sustained finish. Finely extracted tannin is supple with a silky texture, lacy acidity glide along the palate with grace and elegance. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with enticing fragrances and balanced fruit and herbs on a smooth palate. Match with tea-smoked duck and pork loin over the next 6+ years. Fruit was sourced from Brookby Hill, Southern Valleys, clones 5, 115, 667 and 777. Handpicked, wild fermented to 13% alc with 40% whole bunch. Aged in French oak cuves for 11 months, unfined and unfiltered. 19-/20 (95 pts) May 2021 RRP $36
