Sileni Estates Plateau Pinot Noir 2015
Sileni Estates Plateau Pinot Noir 2015/16
Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Grown on elevated river terraces, in the cooler, inland, Mangatahi sub-region, the soils are free-draining silt, over gravels. Bunches are thinned to provide ripe and concentrated fruit flavours. Vinification occurs in a mix of open-top and closed-top tanks. It is gently aged in French barriques for 9 months.
There is a wonderful Pinot Noir nose of strawberries with hints of iron. Sweet black cherry flavours explode on the palate with hints of spice and silky tannins. Sublime with duck!
