Maclean Bay 2016 Pinot Noir
Winery : Maclean Bay
Maclean Bay is the newly-owned and newly-labelled vineyard formerly known as Diamond Island. This vineyard occupies a prime pinot spot near Bicheno and was originally set up with help from Brian Franklin of Apsley Gorge. Many previous vintages from this site (under the Diamond Island label) have performed well at the Royal Hobart Show in particular, with most recently the 2014 and 2012 both receiving GOLD.
Maclean Bay 2016 Pinot is a typically ripe, cherry/berry East Coast pinot with a touch of slurpy juiciness and litheness. That 'sunshine in a bottle' pinot style is what we love so much about Tasmania's East Coast, but there's a balancing pinot elegance here that makes this brilliant for the coming summer months.
