2016 Pinot Noir
2016 Pinot Noir.
There is the usual dark colour from the ripe east coast fruit.
The nose is intense and vibrant with dark cherries and a hint of charey oak and charcuterie. There is still that clean earthy purity of Pinot fruit.
There is a rich textured entry with a hint of coffee. Just before the mid palate the fruit really comes to the fore, much more than with the 2015. The textural, mouth filling component of the tannins leads into a long masculine finish that lingers and lingers.
A very worthy follow on from the 2015.
