Sally’s Hill 2013 Pinot Noir
$35.00 – $420.00 Inc. WET&GST
Hand picked from Estate Grown totally self-sustaining vineyards. Hand punched, open fermented, Small cage pressed this wine was made with minimal intervention.
The lovely Garnet colour, with red tinged edges indicate this wines innate complexity.
Lifted aromas of rose petals and dark berry fruits dominate, some clove spice and dark cherry show in the background. Typically unusual Pyrenees Pinot Noir in the Redbank Winery style.
The palate is earthy and savoury with ample body showing subtle cloves and star anise spices. Lifted berry fruits, plum and light spicy notes lead to an extremely long, dry finish. Firm acidity, well integrated oak and fine tannins give a well balanced wine that has been matured to its optimal drinking age.
Aged in old oak Puncheons for 3 years this wine should improve for 5 to 10 years in the cellar.
