Alcorso 2011 Pinot Noir

$105.00 - $590.00

Julian Alcorso’s career in the Tasmanian wine industry has spanned 40 years, beginning with Moorilla Estate and culminating in Wine Tasmania, a major contract winemaking business. 

Knowing that retirement was nigh, Alcorso embarked on his last project—the creation of the best Riesling and Pinot Noir that he and Tasmania were capable. No expense, nor effort spared, no compromise... The project started in 2011 and continued through to vintage 2015.

Alcorso Pinot Noir is a multi-regional blend, with a dominance of Coal V fruit. Lovely clarity in the glass, deep crimson with garnet. Amplified blueberry, blackcurrant jelly and spice on the nose; juicy and muscular in the mouth, with jubey characters moving into a flowing silky/glycerol finish. Big, big flavours here. At the last, savoury oak adds a pleasing note of dryness to the fine tannins.

Pinot Shop is located in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia at 135 Paterson Street down at the river end near Cataract Gorge, Stillwater Restaurant and The Mill Providore.

Our love for pinot extends to its sibling styles pinot gris and grigio and fizzy cousins sparkling wine and Champagne, even when they don’t contain pinot noir. That’s not to say we’ve become too exclusive - we also stock an interesting range of delicious wines for those (rare) times when you’re not drinking pinot…
