$50

I’m probably the least qualified of the TWF trio when it comes to reviewing Pinot Noir, but there’s work to be done, and I’m not shy.
Well, actually, I’m quite shy, but not as shy as CM. And I tend to ramble a bit. Hi Pete! Hi Joe! Hi Mike! This is a blend of East, North and South, which is probably some kind of jumbled Game of Thrones fantasy going on in Peter Dredge’s head. I like the complexity of the Tasmania blend, the whole greater than the sum of its parts kind of thing.
Spicy, nutty, smoky thing, but the cherry and red fruit rises above, and there’s maybe a bit of a cracked wheat thing going on here too, and some rose petal. It’s light to medium-bodied, almost chewy in a way, though certainly you might call it ‘sinewy’, smoked meat, stalks and spice, ‘minerally’ acidity, and a long finish that offers grip, spice and sour cherry as it moves down the throat. It’a what you might call a very ‘adult’ style of Pinot Noir, but also very good. Gary Walsh - The Wine Front
