Glen Ayr 2016 Pinot Noir
Winery : Glen Ayr
Balanced pinot, showing youthful energy and vitality. This is a great indicator of cellaring potential of up to 8 years, ie, drinking well until 2023.
Glen Ayr is a well-established Coal Valley vineyard, part of the historic StrathAyr farming property which dates back to 1820. The vineyard was planted in 1975, making it the second vineyard to be established in the now much-acclaimed Coal Valley. Some of the vine material is over 40 years old, which has the effect of producing very stable wines.
Deep, but clear and brilliant with dark crimson. Blackberries, with chocolate, licorice and a whiff of dried porcini mushrooms. Sleek but intense in the mouth, with all in complete harmony.
