Fox Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Fox Pinot Noir 2014

A clear, pale, ruby wine with some tears evident. Medium+ intensity nose clean and developing with red rose, red cherry and a hint of pepper (black).

Dry on the palate with medium+ acid, medium alcohol (13.5%) and medium fine tannins. Medium+ bodied, with medium+ flavour and finish. The palate complements the nose with red berries and some savoury spice.

This is a good to very good wine (91 points), made by John Belsham, and value for money in its mid-priced category. Can drink it now but it has the potential for aging up to 5 years. A good example of a new world burgundy – a perfect match for the roast chicken but would be equally at home with most meats, hot or cold.
