Home Hill 2020 Estate Pinot Noir
Winery : Home Hill
Home Hill Estate is at Ranelagh in Tasmania's Huon Valley. Since the remarkable 2005 Home Hill Pinot Noir, which won the (then) Tri Nations Trophy, Home Hill in Tasmania's Huon Valley has produced a superb pinot noir in each vintage. Owner Terry Bennett and son Sean's meticulous viticulture of 20+ year old vines is a significant part of the magnificent Home Hill Pinot style.
Michele's tasting notes: Vivid ruby with magenta flashes. Aerating the wine straight into the glass brought forth enticing aromas of freshly baked raspberry brioche. There’s mulberry too and the classic Home Hill blackcurrant fruit pastilles, tempered with iron/wet stone.
Flowing and sleek in the mouth, with excellent balance and vibrant acidity. The berry fruits layer nicely with each sip and the essential sweet fruit sings through. Vanilla from the oak at the last with incredibly fine, slightly chalky tannins. Quiet undercurrent of latent power here, in the best pinot noir tradition. Will be peak drinking in 5-8 years time.
