PINOT NOIR


2009

 

2009 Dry River Pinot Noir from the Martinborough Region in the southern part of the North Island - Bottle No 2312: the colour was a medium transparent cherry red with a slightly ochre rim; the fruity bouquet displayed redcurrants, cassis, oranges, and cherries.  In the mouth: young fresh cherries, orange zest, and with lots of oxygen ripe sweet blueberries; it was dying quickly though and a bit anaemic.  The finish lasted about 40 seconds.  Decanted one hour prior to serving.  Drink until 2023.  June 2021.  2.75/5
