Matua Pinot Noir (Marlborough) 2011 wine review by (PB)

On the pour this looks like a rose; in the glass it has a fresh light cherry hue with a bouquet that is vibrant with sweet candy cherry gum away from the glass; down in the swirl, you get loads of fruity spiced cherry.

Palate--Pure cherry fruit juice on a foundation of solid structure with loads of Pinot flavor, and a slightly smoky touch on the finish.

New Zealand produces some first rate Pinot Noirs quite distinct from the Burgundy style. They are fresh, fruity, and easy to down. This is a nice value wine; I paid $11 for it on sale from $15. Drink it with joy and raise a glass!
