Kreglinger Wine Estates 2017 Pinot Noirs
Winery : Kreglinger
The influence of winemaker-wunderkind Jim Chatto (Chief Winemaker Kreglinger Wine Estates) and vine-whisperer consultant Ray Guerin has put Pipers Brook Vineyard and Kreglinger Wine Estates' Pinots back where they belong - in the upper echelon of Tasmanian pinot achievement.
2017 Pipers Brook Vineyard Estate Pinot Noir: GOLD MEDALS 2019 Tasmanian Wine Show; 2018 Royal Sydney Show. This is a blend of the best parcels of fruit from Kreglinger's vineyards in the Pipers River and Tamar regions. Michele's notes: Deep ruby. Completely balanced and harmonious pinot noir - there's delicious dark and morello cherry fruit, incredibly fine tannins,a lick of acid, and a litheness across the palate.
2017 Pipers Brook Vineyard A10 Block Pinot Noir $62: This is from a small block close to the winery building at the original Pipers Brook site, established by Andrew Pirie in 1974. Michele's notes: Vibrant colour. Sweet/savoury yin yang pinot thing going on here, with red fruits, juicy acidity and nutty/toasty notes from very good oak. Intriguing and delicious.
