Glen Ayr 2016 Pinot Noir
Winery : Glen Ayr
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.
This new vintage release has all the classic Coal River Valley attributes - dark, sweet fruit with a seamless, mellow flow across the palate. Despite its richness, with overtones of chocolate and spicy fruit cake, there is excellent balance here (the old vine effect), making it suitable for a wide range of food.
