Nelson Pinot Noir 2016



Greenhough – Certified Organic and Conversion (C2), BioGro NZ

750ml:     Alc 13.5%:     pH 3.7:     TA 5.9 g/L:     Dry

Attractively aromatic. Cherry and summer berry-fruits, fragrant herbal tea, cocoa and soft leathery notes. Earthy, mushroom notes evolve as the wine opens up. The palate is plush, brightly red-fruited with a spicy savouriness and supple structure of well-bound tannins. Low yields and an excellent season have imparted great density and depth of flavour giving the wine a youthful vigour. A refreshing plum-skin tanginess and chalky, mineral edge provide drive and balance the riper flavours.
