Whistling Buoy ‘Kokolo Vineyard’ Canterbury Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 14-Aug-2016
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues. Lighter edged. This has an up-front, but concentrated and intense nose with aromas of ripe dark red cherries and raspberries along with soft herb nuances and a suggestion of spice. The primary fruit aromatics are prevalent. Medium-bodied, bright and sweetly rich and lusciously juicy flavours of dark red berry fruits and raspberry liqueur fill the palate, unfolding dark red florals and subtle dark herb nuances. The fruit is supported by fine-gained, supple tannins and moderate extraction, with integrated acidity. The sweet fruitiness is the feature and carries to a lingering, juicy, raspberry nuanced finish. This is a bright and juicy, up-front, dark raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir with fine and supple extraction. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 4-5 years. Clones 777, 667, 115, 5, 114, 375 and 10/5 from the ‘Kokolo’ vineyard at Charteris Bay, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermentation initiated to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new oak. 300 cases made. 18.0/20 Aug 2016 RRP $36.00
