Silver Fern Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

16 May,2018

The ‘Silver Fern’ label is a secondary brand of Yealands Wine Group. The name has a strong connection to the country, Kiwi culture, way of life and of course sport, and this has the ability to link consumers in export markets to this country, as well as attracting consumers who appreciate our national symbols and what they stand for. The wines are made from Marlborough fruit by winemaker Jeff Fyfe. Here, I review the new 2017 Pinot Noir release. www.silverfernwines.co.nz

Silver Fern Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand – Marlborough

17+/20

Moderately deep ruby-red with purple hues, lighter on the rim and youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh and elegant in proportion with good depth of up-front dark-red cherry and raspberry fruit along with subtle notes of fresh herbs and dark-red floral elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a gently concentrated core of dark-red cherry fruit and raspberries along with enlivening notes of fresh herbs. The fruit is underlined by light, grainy tannin structure providing fine grip and linearity, with balanced acidity. The flavours carry positively to a lingering finish of raspberry liqueur. This bright, raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir has moderate concentration, with finely balanced structure and grip and good length. Match with poultry, pork, beef and lamb over the next 3+ years. Marlborough fruit undergoing a fast, hot fermentation to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months with oak. 17.0+/20 May 2018 RRP $21.95
