Woollaston ‘Mahana’ Nelson Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Nelson
Review Date : 26-Mar-2014
Hand picked fruit from the ‘Mahana’ vineyard in the Upper Moutere, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented with 30% whole clusters to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 28 days on skins and aged 18 months in 25% new French oak. Very full, deep, black-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on rim. The bouquet is dense and firmly packed with aromas of ripe black berry fruits with savoury dark herb and complex whole bunch and earthy notes. The nose grows in depth and intensity, unfolding notes of black liquorice and tar. Full-bodied and robustly structured, a grainy, textural mouthfeel and structure encases the powerful and deep flavours of black berried fruits, savoury dried herbs and earth. This is mouthfilling and fulsome, and the flavours are carried with plenty of drive to a long, concentrated and textured finish. This is a powerful, concentrated and robustly structured Pinot Noir with ripe black fruits and complexing whole cluster herb and earthy flavours. Match with casseroles and slow cooked game meat dishes over the next 6-8 years. Certified BioGro organic. 18.5/20 Mar 2014 RRP $52.00
