Milford 2016 Pinot Noir
Winery : Milford Vineyard
Milford Vineyard defines the word boutique. This 1.2ha vineyard, which is owned by a group of friends, is exclusively devoted to pinot noir. Planted in 1985, the site, near Hobart's airport in the Coal Valley, is low yielding and of low vigour. Very limited volumes.
Ruby hues and beautiful clarity in the glass with a warm, fruity and inviting bouquet - raspberry brioche comes to mind. Trademark fragrant cardamom spice too, adding an exotic note. Sublimely balanced in the mouth, the wine flows silkily across the palate; ripe berry fruit flavours mingle with fine, ripe tannins and a hint of nutty oak.
A classic Coal Valley Pinot from 30+ year old vines. Made by Alain Rousseau of Frogmore Wines.
