Urlar Gladstone Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 03-Jun-2015
Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour with some lighter garnet hues on edge. The bouquet is elegant and penetrating with tightly bound aromas of dark red berry fruits entwined with dried herb and savoury whole cluster stalky nuances, unfolding lifted red florals, herbs and subtle undergrowth and oaky hints. Medium-bodied and elegant in proportion, the palate is finely concentrated with sweet red cherry and berry fruit flavours. The fruit is complexed by layers of dried herbs, whole bunch stalk nuances, undergrowth, spices and earthy cedar. The fruit succulence is underlined by finem grainy tannin extraction providing a sinewy-textured line. The wine leads to a firm, lingering finish of bitter cherries and spicy, savoury herbs. This is an elegantly concentrated, sinewy Pinot Noir with complexing savoury herb notes. Match with coq au vin, wild duck and casseroles over the next 6+ years. Dijon clones and Abel clone fruit, hand-picked and 60% indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0/20 May 2015 RRP $40.00
