Waitapu Estate ‘Reef View’ Northland Pinotage 2016

Pinotage from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 17-Jan-2018
Even dark-red colour with garnet hues on the edge. The nose is softly full and voluminous with gently lifted aromas of savoury and spicy mulberries and red berry fruits along with some earth and game notes with volatile suggestions. The aromatics grow in density with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate has elegantly concentrated flavours of savoury and spicy mulberries with a layer of lifted game and earthy elements. The mouthfeel is lively with good acid energy, and rounded from soft, supple tannins that enable immediate approachability. The flavours are up-front, and carry to a moderately lingering, soft finish. This is a soft, rounded and approachable Pinotage with savoury and spicy mulberry fruit along with earth and game notes. Serve with barbecued and grilled game meats over the next 3 years. Fruit from Waitapu Estate fermented to 12.5% alc., the wine aged at least 12 months in seasoned French oak barrels. 16.0/020 Jan 2018 RRP $28.00
