Bangor 2019 Captain Spotswood Pinot Noir
Winery : Bangor Wines
Bangor at Dunalley in southern Tasmania is farmed by the fourth generation of the Dunbabin family, who are relatives of the Dunbabins of Milton Vineyard, and also Six Friends.
The previous vintage of this wine won the Trophy for Best Pinot Noir at the 2020 Tasmanian Wine Show, impressing the judges with its fine balance, freshness and vivacity. Those same key elements are evident in this delicious new release.
Michele's notes: Medium/bright ruby. Pretty aromas of raspberry brioche, gentle spice and Turkish Delight. White pepper and slate too: a good foil to the fruit.
Beautiful clarity to the fruit in the mouth. Like the 2018 vintage it has excellent flow across the palate - the vibrant flavours build with each sip, but without heaviness.
