Whitehaven Greg SV Southern Valleys Pinot Noir 2020, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 11-Aug-2023
Moderately deep purple with a ruby hue, lighter on the rim. This has an enticing sweet bouquet with penetrating aromas of black cherry, ripe strawberry, thyme, mint, earthy clay, vanilla and spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of black cherry and strawberry entwined with thyme, spearmint and an amalgam of spice, earthy clay nuance linger with fine-grained tannin extraction to a savoury finish. The wine has a silky framework supported by a lacy acid tang; earthy nuance and texture broaden the palate and leave a textural finish. This Pinot Noir is well-made and well-balanced, with attractive aromatics and structure. Match with lamb and duck over the next 5+ years. Handpicked fruit from Wrekin Vineyard, fermented in small batches to 13.5% alc, aged in French oak barrels for 10 months. Unfiltered. Organic certified. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Aug 2023 RRP $60
