The Pipers Brook region typically produces growing conditions that provide Pinot Noir with the classic aromatic hallmarks of the variety, namely raspberry and cherry fruit with violet notes.
- TAS - Tasmania
Retains remarkable purple hues; very intense, savoury and very long, drawn out by high acidity (and low pH), which explain the colour; for the aesthetes. Drink to 2014. Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2009
Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant, eye of partridge, with a delicate cherry, purple hew.
Mesmeric on the nose exuding ripe juicy Pinot Moir scents of violets, black cherries, cranberries and dark chocolate aroma’s all support by the soft secondary tones of earthy forest fl oor and gamely pâté de foie meats.
A complex mix of wild berry fruits, dark chocolate and fruitcake spice, the mouth feel is lush and generous, well supported by the finely integrated French oak and long mellow tannins that flow on through the finish.
Boeuf Bourguignonne; washed-rind cheese, perfect to enjoy with lighter meats such as goose and duck, or gamey meats such as rabbit, goes superbly with Italian style dishes.
Drink now to 2017. Likely best year 2010.
