Notes on the vintages:
2016: 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.
The 2017 Pinot is reminiscent of the 2009 and the 2011 Pinot.Â Â A very big wine, it is a product of the vintage, with a long slow ripening.Â 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.
2018: The 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.
