Urlar Gladstone Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 08-Aug-2016
Moderately dark, deep, garnet-red colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is full and voluminous with harmoniously interwoven, complex aromas of savoury red berry fruits, dried herbs, whole cluster stalk elements and secondary earthy nuances that build in depth and intensity in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the palate is soft and gently layered with complex flavours of savoury dark-red berry fruits melded with dark and dried herbs, undergrowth and stalk suggestions, earth and cedar. The fruit has sweetness and lusciousness and is supported by fine, grainy tannin extraction and structure, forming a concentrated core. The acidity is integrated, lending soft energy and linearity, and the wine leads to a long, lingering, lively finish with an array of savoury complexities. This is a complex flavoured and layered Pinot Noir with savoury red fruits, undergrowth and earth, with a well-structured core. Match with casseroles and slow-cooked game dishes over the next 5 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 115, 667, 777 and 114, indigenous yeast fermented with 15% whole clusters to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak barriques. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0+/20 Aug 2016 RRP $40.00
