Pinot Noir 2017
$34.003 Awards/Critics’ Notes
An elegant expression of Tamar Valley Pinot Noir, displaying aromas of ripe dark cherry against a background of spicy and savoury characters.
A rich and complex wine with a good concentration of fine, soft, silky tannins that will reward cellaring.
|Wine Analysis:||Alc/Vol: 13%|
|Colour:||This pinot noir is deep purple with hints of crimson.|
|Aroma:||A rich and complex nose showing generous aromas of ripe dark cherry and red berry fruits dominating against a background layer of spice and savoury complexity.|
|Palate:||It has mouth-filling flavours of ripe raspberry and strawberry. The fruit flavours are balanced by a good concentration of fine, soft, silky tannins and enough acidity to give definition to the finish which is long and persistent with lingering ripe fruit. The wine is drinking well now and will develop more complex and savoury characters with some more time in the bottle.|
|Peak Drinking:||Until 2025|
Recommended food pairings: This full and flavoursome pinot noir makes a versatile accompaniment to a great variety of foods. It would be delightful with an olive crusted lamb cutlet served on a tomato and chickpea salad. Or for something different try the Tamar Ridge Pinot Noir with a roasted squab that has a preserved lemon and thyme stuffing.
Growing Conditions: A blend of several clones was used as we have aimed for an elegant and complex expression of our terroir that will reward cellaring and suit fine dining.
Winemaker: Tom Wallace
