Coopers Creek Pinot Noir Marlborough 2009

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.

This is smoky, earthy and stemmy with a touch of wood helping to sweeten the core of tea-framed red fruits. Light in the mouth with snappy acids and small but crisp tannins, giving this a bright energetic feel for a modestly sized wine. Very Burgundian in the feel and flavor profile with earthy, forest floor and herb accented wild red berry fruit on the palate. The finish is bracing with a fine core of complex earthy, dried herb nuances and moderate length. Not for everyone, but this could really ring some bells. 88pts
