Apogee 2020/2021 Alto Pinot Noir
Winery : Apogee
Rare pinot noir release from the maestro of bubbles Dr Andrew Pirie and his exquisitely tended vineyard at Lebrina in Tasmania's north-east.
Michele's notes: Deep in colour, intense magenta. Dark raspberry, mulberry exotic spice, mushroom, umami... This is quite a bold pinot noir for Apogee's north-easterly locale and shows off the unique qualities of the protected vineyard site. The umami/gamey characters come through on the palate, offset by dark berry fruits and salty/caramel notes at the finish. Very fine and subdued tannins. Extremely good second release of Apogee Pinot Noir.
