Delamere 2021 Pinot Noir
Winery : Delamere
Co-owners and winemakers Fran Austin (GT Wine Young Winemaker of the Year Vintage 2005) and Shane Holloway embarked on their Delamere Vineyard project in 2011, after purchasing it from Richie Richardson who had planted the first vines in 1982.
2021 was a great year in the Pipers River region of north east Tasmania.
Michele's notes: Deeply hued but bright with magenta/ruby flashes. Warm and inviting aromas of raspberry/dark cherry, fresh bakery, cinnamon spice, roasted almond, bacon fat and wet stone. Lots of pinot energy in the mouth; the wine does a veritable jig across the palate, leaving a delicious trail of intense but fine fruit, complemented by vanilla, bitter dark chocolate and a slightly salty tang. Definitely a keeper, but it is a fine drink now.
