Schubert Marions Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015
100% Pinot Noir from Schubert's Marions Vineyard in the Wairarapa region.
Fruit was hand-picked and carefully selected. 100% de-stemmed, cold-maceration and small batch fermentation in stainless steel vats and left on skins for 3 weeks. Aged in 35% new and 65% used French oak barriques for 18 months.
Seductive aromas of wild blackberries and cherries with hints of red roses, and underlying earthy spice and toasty notes. A welcoming entrance of voluptuous wild berries and fleshy plums, underlying forest floor, integrated spices, open fires with hints of toasted hot cross buns coming together with a savoury mineral core leading to a long lingering finish.

THE WINE FRONT - Review by Mike Bennie, May 2017
"Quite sappy and spicy with oak presence despite the low-ish new oak. Seasoning is a good word, there’s plenty of dark berry and faint plummy fruit amongst the cedar and tobacco oak character, touch of malt and cola, though the overall feel is of a serious wine of depth and power. It’s quite formidable, once you get some time with the wine, right at the upper end of muscular for pinot, but doesn’t lose pinosity, if you get my drift. Pretty impressive in its way."
