Volcanic Hills Martinborough Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 19-Oct-2014
Light, even, garnet hued red colour, lighter on edge. The nose is light and soft with savoury red cherry and berry fruit aromas along with dried herb, earth and dusty notes, revealing ethereal gamey layers with aeration. Medium-bodied, light and soft fruit flavours of savoury red berries show with gentle cedary, spicy oak and dried herbal and stalky complexities. Some funky game detail emerges on mid-palate. The acidity is elevated and combined with fine-grained, firm tannin extraction, provides a tight core and line. The wine carries to a tight finish with herb and stalk nuances. This is an elegant, brisk and firm Pinot Noir with savoury flavours and some funky complexities. Match with wild duck, pork or hare over the next 3-4+ years. Martinborough fruit fermented with 10% whole clusters to13.0% alc., the wine spending 24 days on skins, the wine aged 12 months in 25% new oak. 17.0/20 Oct 2014 RRP $36.95
