Saint Clair 'Doctor's Creek' Block 14
Pinot Noir, 2010
New Zealand Red
We haved moved to the new 2010 quickly, and it's another top quality wine and in October won the coveted Marlborogh wine show Pinot Noir trophy. Raspberry, plum, mulberry, oak and spice on a delightful nose. Still very young but displaying lovely berry and plum fruits with real fruit sweetness allied to ripe tannins and toasty oak. It has good acidity too, and may well be even better than the 2009. Certainly more structured, drinking well already but best between 2012 and 2015.
