Clarence House 2016 Reserve Pinot Noir
Winery : Clarence House
GOLD MEDAL Royal Melbourne Wine Show Nov 2017
The aromas filled the counter area at Pinot Shop as we poured two tasting samples - clove, roses, wet stone, dark cherry... classic, elegant (yet generous) and aromatic Tasmanian Pinot. Slinky, silky and juicy in the mouth with exceptional fruit weight and fullness to acid balance; gratifying in every sense. All is in harmony now for your drinking pleasure but it will have its best years from 2019 - 2022.
Anna Pooley makes the wine for David Kilpatrick of Clarence House Estate at Rokeby on Hobart's 'eastern shore'. He planted vines on the site of Hobart's original market garden (early 1800s) in 1998.
