Pinot Noir 2016 – Black Market Deal #35139
- Textured, savoury
When you get past Marlborough’s massive wall of savvy b, you’ll be able to dig into what really hums from this beautiful region at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. The winemakers there know it and so should you: Marlborough pinot noir is awesome, especially the single vineyard stuff that’s given the Rolls Royce treatment in the winery.
This one comes from a high density vineyard where one vine essentially makes one bottle. So here’s your pack of six individual vines in a manner of speaking. The fruit was hand-harvested, basket-pressed, wild yeast- fermented and moved to 25% new French oak to rest. The resulting wine is concentrated and textured with fruit along the black cherry spectrum backed up by herbaceousness and earthiness. It’s fairly robust pinot but still has that ethereal quality in spades.
