A superbly balanced pinot noir, elegant and tidy. Despite its polish and pedigree, the wildness of this red is...

The 2012 Stoneleigh Latitude Pinot Noir, aged for 10 months in French and Hungarian oak, has intense bouquet of pomegranate, dates, smoke and subtle nutmeg and clove. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine, with balanced acidity, subtle-refined tannins and a long, vanilla filled finish. Sip on its own; drink now or keep for the next 5+ years. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts. Tasted in May/13 at 'Tasted at New Zealand Wine Fair' http://grapeselections.com/new-zealand-wine-fair/.

Medium-high intensity aromas with notes of sour cherry, earthy, beet root. Light-to-medium bodied with nice aroma replays. Has mouth-watering acids, and integrated tannins. Finish is lengthy. Nice overall and could be cellared up to 2-3 years. Tasted May/2014.
