PINOT NOIR - THE SEARCH FOR THE HOLY GRAIL

We are constantly on the search for great Pinot Noir – but what are the qualities of greatness that we are so desperately searching for? Wine Writer, Michael Broadbent defines these qualities – “A ripe Pinot vinified in a traditional way…will have a velvety depth of colour (true Burgundy Red) with pronounced viscosity. Its bouquet is sweeter and more opulent than its counterpoint in Bordeaux, and it will have a body which is both soft, alcoholic and velvety.”
Anthony Hanson, in his book on ‘Burgundy’ makes the statement “Ca Sent Ca Merde’ (Great Burgundy smells of shit) – a common expression on the Cote. Not always, but frequently there is a smell of decaying matter, vegetable or animal about them.’ For a full discussion visit  Pinot Noir: The Search for the Holy Grail

This is a more generous Pinot than Nick Farr’s Geelong version. Bright crimson colour with mauve hue. Medium body. The nose has a perfumed lift with notes of violets, strawberry, cherry and spice showing good varietal character, with just a hint of game. The palate has impressive weight, showing a moderate power wave. Flavours of strawberry, cherry and spice emerge over a background of liquorice and Troncais oak. Long aftertaste of strawberry, cherry and spice.
