New, single clone, single vineyard "gumboot clone" superstar
Abel Single Vineyard Nelson Pinot Noir 2015
Cherry, plum, violet, juicy, fruit-forward
Very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red with youthful purple hues. The nose is finely proportioned with deeply packed and intense aromas of rich, ripe black cherry, dark red berry and dark plum fruit, melded with fragrant violet floral layers and subtly savoury, herbal-nuanced perfumes and liquorice notes. Medium-bodied, the palate features rich, plush and vibrantly juicy flavours of dark red berryfruit and plums along with violet florals and lifted whole berry fermentation aromatic notes. The mouthfeel is bright and enlivened by fresh, lacy acidity, and the fruit supported by fine, flowery, supple tannins which allow the fruit to prevail.
