Dalrymple 2018 Cottage Block Pinot Noir
Winery : Dalrymple
Superb release of Dalrymple Cottage Block Pinot, which is produced from a few blocks - declared best of vintage - off the original Estate vineyard at Pipers River.
Michele's notes: Deep in colour, especially for a pinot of this region. Beguiling and complex aromas of dark fruits, chocolate, cinnamon, charcuterie, vanilla and hint of mint.
Softly textured but juicy - there's a delightful liveliness to the fruit, but also depth of flavour. Beautifully structured palate with balance of fruit to acid. Refreshing and clean finish, subtle dry/chalky savouriness from natural grape tannins and superbly balanced oak. Winemaker Pete Caldwell has made a beauty.
