Waitapu Estate ‘Reef View’ Northland Pinotage 2015

Pinotage from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 17-Jan-2018
Full, dark, deep red colour with black hues, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly concentrated with full and deep aromas of dark-red berry and mulberry fruit along with lifted savoury and spice cedar notes. Medium-bodied, the palate is well-proportioned with flavours of ripe dark-red berry and mulberry fruit entwined with cedar, spice and game elements, lifted by a little volatility. The flavours show with good depth, and the mouthfeel features refined tannin extraction and integrated acidity. The palate has good drive and energy, leading to a lingering finish. This is an elegantly proportioned Pinotage with concentrated, but rounded flavours of dark-red berry and mulberry fruit with lifted spice and savoury layers on a fine-textured palate with good depth. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 3-4+ years. Fruit from Waitapu Estate fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged at least 12 months in seasoned French oak barrels. 17.0/20 Jan 2018 RRP $28.00
