Resolution Vineyard 2016 Pinot Noir
Winery : Resolution Vineyard
D'Entrecasteaux Channel is the picturesque waterway south of Hobart between Bruny Island and the Tasmanian mainland, extending around to the estuary of the Huon River. At a latitude of 43S, harvest is late here, allowing for excellent development of flavour. Resolution Vineyard* is but one of the uber boutique producers in this area, tiny on volume but big on quality and value for money.
Michele's notes: Bright crimson in the glass, brilliantly aromatic and inviting with wafts of cardamom spice and raspberry brioche. The aromas alone are mouth-watering; in the mouth the promise follows through. It's soft but juicy, the cherry/berry/jubey fruits sing through, and it finishes clean with just a touch of fine, dry skin tannins. Lip-smacking. Oak is barely perceptible, nicely integrated even at this youthful age.
*Not to be confused with Devils Corner Resolution Pinot from the East Coast.
