Third Child Pinot Noirs
Winery : Third Child
Third Child is one of the many small, family owned vineyards in the Coal Valley. Judging by the quality of the Pinots that we have seen from this Tea Tree vineyard over the last vintages, this is a very special site of 2.5 hectares are planted to 9 pinot clones.
Third Child 2016 Thomas Nicholas Pinot Noir: Easy going style, top seller. Pretty perfume of red cherry, rose petals and cola. Soft and red cherry-juicy in the mouth. Refreshingly clean finish but the flavours linger - licorice right at the end with some very fine tannins indeed. Impressive for this price.
Third Child 2016 Benjamin's Reserve Pinot Noir: Combines perfume, elegance and fine structure. The colour is deep but bright, the aromas a beautiful meld of fine florals and mouth-watering dark berry fruits. In the mouth the intense fruits carry on with tasty cola/char from the oak. Built for ageing.
