Two Tails Marlborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 03-Sep-2014
Hand picked fruit from the Wairau Valley, destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in French oak for several months. Light ruby-red colour with moderate depth, lighter on rim. The nose is full and even with gently concentrated aromas of bright dark raspberry fruit harmoniously lifted by red florals. The oaking is subtle and the bouquet reveals raspberry liqueur notes. Medium-full bodied, restrained fruit flavours of dark red cherry and raspberry fruit are melded with delicate herbal notes and red floral elements. This has a subtle sweetness at the core, the wine following a very fine-grained tannin line with background acidity lending freshness and enhancing the fruit. The textures carry the wine to a light, lingering dry finish. This is an elegant, fine-textured and harmoniously flavoured Pinot Noir. Match with pasta, poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. 17.5/20 Sep 2014 RRP $24.95
