Yarra Valley, Victoria
Estate grown Pinot Noir with aromas of black cherry, stewed strawberry, clove and cinnamon. A pleasant, savoury finish with powdery tannins.
The appearance is a crimson red. Aromas of black cherry, stewed strawberry with spices such as clove and cinnamon are imminently apparent. Some sweet creamy notes are also present along with choc-orange tones, capers and kirsch liqueur.
The palate is a gracious mix of freshness and structure. More strawberry and cherry with watermelon notes are present. There are savoury/umami notes of beef stock, dried twiggy bark and field mushrooms with more brown spice notes including some white pepper. Tannins are firm and building, yet powdery. A cocoa powder note combines with the vanillin-sweetness to take the wine down a pleasant savoury finish.
This structured style of Pinot Noir will be best enjoyed 2 – 7 years after vintage, with a high potential to age further.
A great food match is Soup aux Champignons (French mushroom soup) and toasted bread or slow-cooked lamb with lentils.
Decanting is recommended.
