Clemens Hill 2017 Pinot Noir
Winery : Clemens Hill
This well-established Coal River Valley vineyard has received many major accolades over the years. It is the jubey, intense yet elegant style, without harshness or over-concentration which so pleases pinot lovers.
Michele's notes: Deep magenta, typical of Clemens Hill Pinots. Very aromatic, lifted bouquet, briary/mulberry, marzipan, and a little smokiness from some whole bunch which works well with the intensity of the fruit aromas. Succulent, sweet fruit floods the palate with a note of cola/bitter chocolate and balancing astringency. This is a wine very much in its youth, everything tightly coiled – expect 10 years of more of a happy cellaring life.
