Vynfields Martinborough Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Nov-2011
Dark, deep hearted ruby-red colour with black-red hues and a lighter rim, this has a tight and very concentrated nose of dark plums, black cherries, violet perfumes and nuances of dried herbs. A little complexing toasty oak and a faint touch of reduction shows on the bouquet. Medium-full bodied, this is elegantly proportioned, but extremely intense and rich in concentrated flavours of dark cherries, violets, herbs and bitter chocolate. The acidity is soft and balanced and the tannins very fine-grained, resulting in a velvet textured mouthfeel. The finish is dry and firm and features perfumed florals, the flavours long and lingering. Still youthful, this should become softer, richer and more complex over the next 6-8 years. Match with flavoursome duck, and pork dishes. Fruit from the ‘Vynfields' vineyard on the Martinborough Terrace, cropped at 30 hl/ha, fully destemmed and given a cold soak, then fermented to 14.5% alc. With 20 days on skins, the wine was aged 12 months in 30% new French oak barriques. 18.0/20 Nov 2011 RRP $42.50 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade', the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews' operates
