Priory Ridge 2018 Pinot Noir
Winery : Priory Ridge
Priory Ridge, owned by Julie and David Llewellyn, is 20ha vineyard not far from St Helens and Binalong Bay, at the northern end of Tasmania's East Coast. It is part of a property that has been in Julie Llewellyn's family for more than 100 years.
Made by Brian Franklin (of Apsley Gorge), it bears attributes that Apsley Gorge fans in particular will adore, and also those who like a bit of funky pinot earthiness backed by rich fruit.
Pinot Shop notes: Deep, bold colour. Rich plum, dark raspberry, exotic spice with a little meaty overlay. Fantastic texture in the mouth - sweet, rich fruit with chocolate, slate, licorice tang and a cleansing dry finish.
