Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 05-Dec-2017
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented with fragrant aromas of dark-red berry fruit with subtle nuances of dark herbs and hints of earthy detail, unfolding soft red floral notes. The fruit has purity and builds to form a fine core, Medium-bodfied, the palate has gently sweet and rich fruit flavours of dark-red berry fruit with subtle savoury herb nuances, unveiling red florals and hints of spice. The mouthfeel is supple with fine-grained flowery tannin extraction, and enlivened by fresh, lacy, balanced acidity. The wine carries smoothly along a velvety line leading to a light-fruited, moderately sustained finish. This is a finely presented, sweet, red berry and floral fruited Pinot Noir with a supple, near-velvety palate. Serve with antipasto, poultry and pork over the next 5 years. Fruit from the ‘William Grace’ vineyard on ‘Waihinga Gardens’, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 12.8% alc., the wine aged 12 months in a 2 y.o. Francois Frere half-barrel, and bottled without fining or filtration. 12 dozen made. 18.0-/20 Dec 2017 RRP $45.00
