Handpicked Collection 2019 Tasmania Pinot Noir
Winery : Handpicked
Handpicked makes wines 'with minimal intervention from sustainably managed vineyards' all over the world. Peter Dillon is the head of winemaking. Handpicked's excursion into Tasmania was cemented with the purchase of Tamar Valley Auburn Road vineyard in 2018. Native Point vineyard was added to the estate in 2019, after a decade of purchasing fruit from the former owners Tim and Sheena High.
Michele's notes: Deep ruby, enticingly aromatic with dark berry fruits, cloves and chocolate. These flavours continue on the palate, with the fruit intensity and purity framed by classy oak. Liquorice, cocoa and char notes come through on the savoury finish. Excellent pinot energy here.
