Matahiwi Estate Pinot Noir 2016

Matahiwi Estate Pinot Noir 2016 well made Kiwi Pinot at a great price

Tasting Notes

This showcases engaging fruit purity that is nuanced with a touch of smoky oak and spice on the nose. Dark cherry and pomegranate come to the fore on its medium bodied frame that has some spice tones carried over from the nose. This gains suppleness and roundness in the palate with aeration, while the assorted red fruit notes show engaging brightness and purity that leads to a silky finish with some cherry stone fruit tartness on the back end. This has lovely vibrancy and a juicy quality that keeps you coming back for another glass. Just now starting to open up this should offer great drinking pleasure over the next 2-3 years.

Food Accompaniments

Duck, venison, mushroom dishes, salmon

Winemaker Notes

This attractive, soft Pinot Noir shows red berry, dark plum and cherry flavours with fragrant fresh hay and savoury oak characters. On the palate, it is soft and round, with a hint of spicy smoky oak and a long finish.
