Vynfields Martinborough Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 14-Feb-2011
Medium deep garnet-ruby in colour with a lighter edge, this has an elegant bouquet of dark berry fruits intermingling with nuances of spices, truffles, savoury game and meat, along with a note of chocolate. This is very Martinborough in expression. On palate, this is medium weighted, with flavours of red and darker berry fruits complexed by dried herbs, meat and game. An elegant wine, this is accessible now, but the moderately firm tannins, while supple, will require more time for resolution. The wine's freshness is enhanced by good acidity. This has put on body and become richer over the last six months. It will continue to drink well for another 5-7 years. Made from rows dedicated to the Estate label, cropped at 36 hl/ha (grand cru is 35 hl/ha), fruit totally destemmed and fermented to 14.5% alc, aged 14 months in 25% new French barriques. 300 cases made. 17.5/20 Feb 2011 RRP $42.50 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
