Nicolas Jay Nysa Pinot Noir 2014


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The 2014 Nysa Vineyard-designate Pinot Noir is focused and lively, opening up with bright red fruit, as well as notes of violet and clove. In the mouth, it is immediately charming, with fine tannins and a velvety texture that underlie flavors of black raspberry, cranberry and vanilla. Long and beautifully seductive, this wine dances across the palate, before gliding elegantly to a long and expressive finish. If consumed within the next few years, the wine will benefit from a gentle decanting one or two hours before serving. In a few short years, this wine will integrate even further and become quite irresistible.

Wine EnthusiastFruit from this high-profile vineyard builds a velvety silky seductive wine that impresses immediately. It captures the ephemeral elegance of the grape, in a young wine with well-managed phenolics. The strawberry-centric fruit is lightly dusted with cinnamon, from 15 months in 50% new French oak.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Nysa Pinot Noir was picked on 18 September from dry-farmed vines that suffer from phylloxera, yet still offered around 2.2-tons per acre. It is raised for 15 months in 50% new French oak, 100% destemmed. It has a well-defined bouquet with dark berry fruit, hints of clove and bay leaf infusing the blackberry and raspberry fruit, undergrowth scents emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, crisp red cherry and redcurrant fruit, a pleasant saline tincture coming through towards the composed finish. I can see this offering wine lovers 8-10 years of drinking pleasure.
