Tolpuddle Coal River Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from Australia - Tasmania
Review Date : 08-Feb-2017
Dark red colour with some garnet. The nose is full and powerful with depth and volume showing dark-red berry fruits and a layering of dark herbs and whole cluster stalk piquancy. Just a tad on the greener side than ideal. Rich and bold with plenty of fruitiness on the palate. Dark-red berry fruit match by the herbal layer. Some earthy complexity. This is fulsome with serious mouthfeel, the tannins significant, but fine-grained. All is enlivened by fresh acid tension. A little on the green side with the whole clusters, but otherwise all there. From vines planted in 1988, hand-picked and freighted to Shaw and Smith in the Adelaide Hills, fermented with high proportion of whole berries and 40% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in French barriques. 19.0-/20 Feb 2017 RRP $78.00
