Harris Estate

Harris Estate Pinot Noir 2013 Waipara
Varietal, ripe, fruity and engaging with dark cherry and raspberry then toasty vanilla spice, fresh herb notes and oak attributes. On the palate - dry, fruity and young - flavours of cherry fruits and raspberry return, a very firm palate with tense tannins and acidity, quite herbal, agressive phenolics shortening the finish and a little distracting. A food wine for the moment  - requiring plenty of tannin reducing elements. Overall okay.
