Wine notes on the current releases:

 

It is amazing when you look at a glass of Apsley Gorge Pinot: translucent, ethereal.

It is hard to imagine the power and concentration of the nose and the palate from such a delicate looking wine. The 2019 is no exception.

 NOSE:  Straight away there is the complexity. How can this come from grapes?

All of the elements are there, but they are difficult to isolate. Forest floor and that natural yeast funkiness. They all combine to give you this complex smell sensation, and then the fruit comes to the fore.

PALATE: A very rich textural entry. Beautiful fruit tannins, more a mouth feel than drying skin and seed tannins.  All this punctuated by rich pinot fruit leading to a long persistent finish.

 

2018 Pinot Noir colour is typically dark with a translucent depth.

The nose has the rich Apsley Pinot fruit, but something else is pushing through; charcuterie, earthiness, and so much more.

 After smelling the wine you know the palate is going to be good. Very good! A powerful entry, filling the mouth with rich fruit, complex textural tannins and the indescribable mystery of pinot .

And it DOESN’T finish.

 

The 2017 Pinot is reminiscent of the 2009 and the 2011 Pinot.  A very big wine, it is a product of the vintage, with a long slow ripening. The nose shows rich, dark fruit with some cigar box and sous bois character.

On tasting you immediately sense the mouth filling texture with that ethereal pinot fruit that goes on and on. This wine just doesn’t go away.
