Bright red. An evocative pinot aromatic eruption revealing scents of Black Forest cake; Kir Royale and cherry derivatives - (dark chocolate) Cherry-Ripe, glazed cherry and cherry blossom. Aromas of ashened damper lifted from the coals morph with those acquired from the wine’s earlier French oak lodgings ... very lightly charred, perfumed. Savoury nuances ascend, verging towards those akin to crisp pork belly fat and crackling. Balanced and elegant ... of understated weight and dimension. Fruity and varietal, acknowledging both age and Adelaide Hills birthplace. Structurally, diplomatically courted by compliant silky tannins, ‘just-there’ oak, and ‘ever-so-pleasant’ acidity.
