Tasmania's Apsley Gorge is a world apart. The location is unique, the vineyard snuggled as it is under the Douglas Apsley National Park at the northern end of the East Coast. It is a cool location, extending the ripening season and making it among the last to pick in the state. Brian Franklin has honed his experience in both hemispheres - he produces wine in both France and Tasmania.
2019 Apsley Gorge Pinot Noir -
Michele's notes: All the typically Apsley G attributes that fans adore are here – deep rich hue and a bouquet to match. Brooding, intriguing, complex, a meld of dark fruits and savoury/umami elements. Plum and dark cherry with slate, mushroom/game, touch of char and vanilla. The clear, intense fruit is predominant though.
Silky, textural and flowing in the mouth with rich, ripe fruit, chocolate and aniseed. So, so very tasty. Definitely not for those who fancy taut, edgy pinots, but definitely for those who love power in its best manifestation – stature and respect without force. A sublime pinot experience.
