Urlar Gladstone Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 16-Dec-2017
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues on the rim, lighter edged. The nose is elegantly concentrated with good depth of dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with subtle notes of fresh and dark herbs, some savoury whole bunch stalk nuances, and lifted florals. This has interest and detail. Medium-bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant fruit flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with an amalgam of dark herbs, hints of whole bunch stalk and lifted florals, along with nutty and mineral nuances. The palate possesses richness and sweetness, balanced by fine-grained tannin extraction, and fresh lacy acidity lending energy and vitality. The flavours carry to an elegant and refreshing finish. This is a bright and vibrant, dark-red cherry and berry fruited Pinot Noir with herb, stalk and floral notes with some oak, on a fine-textured, poised palate. Serve with poultry and pork dishes over the next 6 years. Hand-picked fruit predominantly indigenous yeast fermented with approx. 10% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 33% new French oak barriques. Certified BioGro organic. 18.0+/20 Dec 2017 RRP $45.00
