Martinborough Vineyard Pinot Noir Martinborough Martinborough Terrace 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Pinot Noir is endowed with a fabulous mineral-rich nose superbly defined with touches of strawberry and boysenberry the palate very concentrated yet very well-defined with vibrant acidity ebullient red-berried fruits and a svelte silky sophisticated finish. Its quality shines through this lovely wine that should drink over 3-5 years. This is another icon of New Zealand whose wines helped put their Pinot Noir on the international map.--Neal Martin of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium red. Dark cherry and musky, spicy earth and underbrush on the nose. Fat, lush and sweet, with very good breadth to the dark fruit and spice flavors. This shows the musky earth and game nuances I associate with Martinborough pinot but has plenty of supporting fresh acidity. Gained in sweetness with aeration but this is still a bit tight. Finishes with chewy, building tannins.

Martinborough fruit vinted in small lots using traditional French methods and barrel aging. This wine displays an abundance of flavor, primarily strong berry fruit with a touch of spicehellip; the quintessential Pinot Noir. Considered by many to be Australasiarsquo;s best Pinot Noir.
