ABV: 13.5%
Closure: Stelvin

Semi translucent red to dark red colour with a light red hue. Intensely fragrant and alluring the nose features red cherry, wild strawberry and subtle rhubarb aromas which intermix with clove, violets, faint forest floor and spicy cedar. Delicious cherry and strawberry fruits are juicy and supple in their feel with notions of clove, forest floor, rhubarb and spicy cedar lying underneath. Expansive and powerful but light across the palate it has polished tannins with fresh acidity lending energy to the long moreish finish.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.

Other Reviews….
Pinot noir sourced from the Elsewhere vineyard, between Cygnet and Huonville in the Huon Valley; 25% whole bunches, matured for 11 months in French oak (16% new). Phwoar ... this smells great. Red cherries, raspberries and cranberry notes are supported by hints of exotic spice, amaro herbs, washed rind cheese, Peking duck, undergrowth and mushrooms. It's vivid and detailed with pure fruit and an enchanting gamey, wild side, stony fine tannins and a sapid acid pulse. A great release from Keira O'Brien. Drink by 2032.
