2013 Marisco Vineyards The Journey Pinot Noir

Description

Marlborough's reputation for Pinot Noir is carved out of clay, the clay soils of the region's Southern Valleys. A blend of Abel, Clone 6 and 777 Pinot Noir, you don't need to be a wine geek to realise you're in the presence of greatness with this exceptional Pinot. A faithful expression of Marlborough's Ben Morven Valley, the wine is low cropped to just 1.5kg per vine and fermented on whole clusters before maturation for 11 months in French Oak. A real tour de force, The Journey is a must for serious Pinot lovers!

Smells

Dazzling in its fragrance and poise, notes of dried herb and forest floor mingle with pure cherry fruit and rose florals with a hint of woodfire in the distance.

Tastes

Impossibly silky and supple in the mouth, a refined tannin structure conveys flavours of home made liquorice, cherry and dark chocolate. A decadent style of Pinot Noir, this wine will be at its best around 2018 and keep through 2023.
