Fox by John Belsham
Pinot Noir, 2008
New Zealand Red
John Belsham is one of New Zealandís most highly regarded wine makers, and heís the man behind Marlborough producer Foxes Island.
Classy looking pinot in the glass with the first flush of age just showing in the rim. Terrific on the nose with damson, strawb, cherry and a little bit of oak too. The palate is full and rich but really fresh with bright red cherry/berry fruits. That lick of oak sits nicely on the finish and works really well with the bright fruits.
Excellent, Pinot . Stunning to think this is a 'second wine' behind Foxes Island
