Dan Struckman Petite Pinot Noir Martinborough, 2018

Martinborough

Producer

Sam Harrop Wine

Grape Variety

Pinot Noir

Martinborough is the best spot on the North Island for quality Pinot Noir, as suggested by the similar climate data it shares with Burgundy. Dan has produced a fine 2018 Pinot Noir with great cellaring potential. Aromas of rose petal, redcurrants and cola cubes are all present yet subtle. More structured than the 2017 offered last year, it is medium bodied with a firm linear acidity. This is a savoury wine with spicy flavours and supple tannins and a long woody and bitter cherry finish. A wine with depth that needs some time before drinking, and one which I look forward to seeing develop. It is produced from three clones of Pinot Noir – Abel, 777 and 115, planted on alluvial gravel terraces which were all dry farmed. Grapes were picked on March 24 and 25, 2018, de-stemmed, and underwent a cold soak for five days prior to fermentation. It was matured in oak barrels for 11 months with 33% new.
