William Grace Martinborough Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 26-Feb-2018
Light ruby-red colour with some depth, lighter on the rim. On the nose, very soft and gentle with an array of red berry and red floral fruits, the oaking very harmonious. This is classical Pinot Noir varietal expression in a feminine sense. Medium-bodied, this has good fruit richness with excellent sweetness and succulence. Some spicy elements add detail. The oaking is hardly perceptible, a real positive. The tannins are soft but provide a positive line, and the acid balance lends good vibrancy. A soft and elegant wine but with a core to see it develop well for 5+ years. Possibly the best vintage of William Grace to date. The wine aged 8 months in 1 y.o. oak followed by a further 8 months in 3 y.o. oak. Only 270 bottles made. To be released in 2019. 18.0+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $TBA
