Geelong Pinot Noir 2021

Very savoury nose. Palate is sweet with intense dark fruit and spices but without enough acid to balance the opulent fruit character. Mouth coating and long, but a but heavy handed. — 2 months ago

Cloudy Bay

Te Wahi Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

Tonight we were very excited to try this Pinot Noir from Cloudy Bay, hailing from Central Otago on the South Island of New Zealand, the southerly latitude offering cooling influences, a great foundation for an elegant Pinot Noir.

We’re tasting the Cloudy Bay, Te Wahi, Pinot Noir, Central Otago, New Zealand.

It is medium ruby.

On the nose, there is medium (+) intensity of aromas including ripe black cherry, strawberry, pomegranate, violet, licorice, black tea, fresh mint, nutmeg, vanilla, cardamom, and forest floor notes.

Characteristics on the palate match with the nose. It’s a dry wine with medium(+) acidity, a medium(+) body, high alcohol (14%), medium and refined tannins, and a medium(+) finish.

This wine is extremely vibrant and characterful, with a strong structure indicating age-ability.

For some reason saying “mature vines” out loud rubs me the wrong way. Do they sell wines from immature vines too?

Dinner at Amah with London Lees. Very nice balanced Pinot with a cherry bright nose and a core of berries that lifts the wine, took an hour or so to open up. Very nice, one more. AA26 — 2 months ago
