Tiki Estate Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015

$24.00 $21.60

Aromas of dark cherry and plum supported by a layer of toasty oak. Richly flavoured and aromatic, this wine delivers elegant Pinot flavours complemented by fine grained tannins and well-balanced smoky oak flavours. The palate is full but soft with great length of flavour and finishes dry with perfect weight and mouth feel.

VINTAGE

Ideal weather conditions led up to a harvest that was commenced in mid-April, with fruit in perfect condition and packed with flavour. The season also provided the requisite large diurnal temperature fluctuations that maximise the varietal flavours and colour of Marlborough Pinot Noir.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was destemmed without crushing to retain a percentage of whole berries in the ferment. Fermentation was carried out in small fermenters with twice daily gentle air-rummaging of the cap to extract colour and tannins. Further maceration post-ferment and prior to pressing has enhanced the palate with soft tannins. After malolactic fermentation the wine underwent a period of oak maturation prior to stabilising for bottling. The wine has not been fined in order to retain maximum flavour and mouthfeel
