Shcubert Marion’s Vineyard Pinot Noir
Moderately dark, deep ruby-red colour, lighter with some garnet hues. The nose is full and gently voluminous with a well-packed core of ripe, dark-red berry fruit harmoniously melded with subtle notes of dark and dried herbs, and dark-red florals, along with a little savoury, earthy complexity. This is beautifully integrated in presentation and shows a positive, deep core. Medium-full bodied, the palate is well-proportioned with a rounded and deep heart of sweetly rich and ripe dark-red berry fruits harmoniously interwoven with dark and dried herbs, red florals and a little earth. The fruit is bright, lively and vibrant, and enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity and underlined by supple, fine-grained tannin extraction. The palate has a positive line with excellent energy and drive, and carries to a sweetly rich, red-fruited and floral nuanced finish. This is a rich and sweet-fruited dark-red berried Pinot Noir with a positive heart, liveliness, supple structure and excellent energy.
Luscious, deep-fruit aromas of red cherries and raspberries rise from the glass, and the palate is crisply layered and mouth-filling, with fine tannins. Ripe red fruit obtains complexity from hints of spicy characters, tea leaf and earth. The texture has sophistication and elegance, being sumptuous and refreshing at the same time.
