Henschke's Lenswood vineyard in the Adelaide Hills

Tuesday 8 January 2013

St. Erth, Pinot Noir (2010)

Geelong, Victoria
13%, screwcap, around $18

Ruby in colour. The bouquet was varietally correct. Notes of cranberry and plum combined to provide a pleasing depth of fruit on the palate, showing nice texture and good balance. That fruit showed a lovely purity with only subtle oak influence. Low acidity. It's difficult to find quality Australian Pinot Noir that's less than $20. Some people might say that this wine was rather simple and easy drinking, but I really liked it - 93.
