Dog Point 2017/18 Pinot Noir
Winery : Dog Point
A classic Marlborough producer, consistently producing one of the best Pinot Noirs in New Zealand. Fruit for this wine is sourced largely from hill slopes, some plantings dating back to 1983. 75% de-stemed fruit with 25% whole bunch. Vinified using natural yeasts.
Vineyard tasting notes: Deep ruby colour, perfumed red fruits and bright violet aromas. Dried herb, characteristic brown spice notes and smokiness.
Dense core of juicy fruit and bold, fine-grained, ripe tannins. A fresh thread of acidity... carrying the intense flavours through the palate, finishing long. This wine has all the makings of a long-lived Marlborough Pinot Noir.
