White Rock 2015 Pinot Noir
Winery : White Rock
White Rock Pinot Noir is a very welcome addition to the small, but high quality selection of pinots from Tasmania's north-west - Ghost Rock (Port Sorrell), Barringwood Park (Sheffield) and Blustery Banks (Spreyton).
White Rock Vineyard is at Kimberley, not far in one direction from Railton and, in the other, Elizabeth Town. As well as producing a sweetly silky pinot, White Rock produces the only commercial bottling of the dornfelder grape in the country.
Scents of sweet red and dark cherries mingle with savoury/cola notes (from the oak). Such a satiny smooth pinot in the mouth; the fruit flavours linger beautifully. Lots of flavour, without harsh tannins, and the medium weight makes it well-suited to sprightly Asian flavours and white meats, particularly pork belly.
