Decibel ‘Martinborough’ Pinot Noir 2016

Martinborough | $37

From the famous terraces of Martinborough the 2016 Pinot Noir was crafted with 10% whole bunch fermentation and only 10 months in oak allowing the wine to retain its elegance.  Intense dark cherry, forest floor, and savoury aromatics osculate the nose on first approach with hints of dried vanilla and lightly toasted nuts. A structured front palate turns quickly into luscious, juicy tannins with a lingering suppleness. Decibel – Tasting Notes

“Dark ruby-red colour with garnet hues, showing good depth, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with a packed and rounded heart of ripe dark-red and black cherry and berry fruits along with an amalgam of dark herbs, violet florals, savoury earthiness, unfolding black plum elements. Medium-bodied, the palate is finely presented with rich, juicy and vibrant, but stylishly restrained flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit, intermixed with plums and subtle notes of savoury dark herbs and a little earthiness. The mouthfeel is enlivened by lacy acidity and the fruit is supported by light, fine-grained tannin extraction and supple grip. The fruit forms a tight core and line, and the wine flows with good energy to a long, elegant finish. This is a stylish Pinot Noir with vibrant dark-red berry and plum fruit and subtle earthy and herb notes on a supple, lively palate. Match with roasted lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 5 years.” 18/20 Raymond Chan – Wine Reviewer

“Could you taste a wine and feel inspired?  Could you smell a glass of wine and want to move to the other side of the world?  It happened to me when I discovered New Zealand wines.  My story and my wines are all about the people who inspire me, the places I’ve been and the music I love.” Daniel Brennan – Winemaker
