Coopers Creek Pinot Noir Marlborough 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Coopers Creek sits in the heart of the Huapai and Kumeu wine region, about 35km north west of Auckland. It is an area steeped in tradition and home to some of the oldest established vines in New Zealand. It was here, in 1980, that Andrew and Cynthia Hendry first established the Coopers Creek winery with the aim of producing the very highest quality wines, principally dry in style and reflecting New Zealand's outstanding cool climate viticultural conditions. This lovely Pinot Noir is characterised by black plums and black cherries on the nose intermingled with subtle French oak and nuances of grilled meat. Rich and firm on the palate with bold, sweet fruit. A core of ripe black cherry lingers on the finish.

Pale yellow color, apricot, slate and sage on the nose with notes of tropical fruit, subtle petrol on the front of the palette with tart apple and citrus notes with lingering acid, finish of cherries and toasted marshmallow. Love the screw-top, this wine lasted a few weeks in the fridge between glasses.

A nice accessible quaffing Pinot. Could do with a little age to round out it's character (but it won't be a big bold Pinot anytime). A great summer wine, paired well with grain fed filet from the grill.
