Wairau River Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 27-Aug-2016
Even, light ruby-red colour, paler on the rim. The nose is light with aromas of dark strawberry and subtle raspberry fruit entwined with dark herb notes, unfolding some liquorice and spice notes. The aromatics build in depth with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses bright, primary, juicy flavours of dark strawberry fruit, raspberries and dark red florals forming and elegantly concentrated core with supple tannin extraction and a rounded mouthfeel. The wine has a gentle tannin line with soft acidity, and unfolds liquorice and spice detail as it flows. The flavours carry to a dry, textural finish with moderate length. This is a balanced, juicy, strawberry and raspberry fruited Pinot Noir with spice elements and a grainy mouthfeel, finishing dry. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 4 years. Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Spring Creek’, ‘Home Block’ and ‘Winery Block’ sites, destemmed and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in French oak. 16.5+/20 Aug 2016 RRP $25.00
