This Pinot has quickly become one of Tasmania’s most sought after wines with a string of accolades being awarded to past vintages including the Jimmy Watson Trophy for the 2014. Matured for 15 months in French oak the fruit for Kelly’s Reserve is sourced from the middle 12 rows of the vineyard which have had their trellising system modified to reduce the yields as much as possible and in turn produce fruit with greater concentration.
Semi translucent bright dark red core with a light crimson red hue. Fragrant yet refined aromatics of red cherries intermixed with dried herbs, violets and a hint of sour cherries sit over subtle stalky cedar, some meatiness and spice. Powerful and deep yet graceful the palate is blessed with a very supple, elegant mouthfeel and flavours of ripe dark cherries subtlety infused with anise. Showing great finesse and harmony the primary fruit flavours are underpinned by some gamey meatiness, faint toasty cedar, subtle dried herb infusions and spice. Silky, perfectly integrated tannins. The power and richness understated finishing with a long conclusion of ripe dark cherries, strawberries, subtle anise, light toasty cedar, some meatiness and spice.
Cellar 6-8 years.
The colour is little, if any, different to its Estate sibling, but the bouquet has more fragrant and varietally pure fruit. The palate unexpectedly reverses the plot, being more complex, more foresty and less fruity. There is presumably more whole bunch use, but the wine's intensity draws saliva from the mouth. Drink by 2030.
