Andrew Jefford

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Limpid clear garnet-red. Lovely nose! I could certainly mistake this for Burgundy: there’s a development and an authority to the red fruits here. Truly engaging and complex. Deep, vivid and full: masterful depth and resonance of fruit, backed by a superb tannic presence. It’s statuesque rather than sylph-like, but hugely classy withal, and its still rolling and vapouring on your tongue 40 seconds after the wine has actually gone. Lovely Pinot, full stop, and a great effort for 2011. Indeed maybe 2011 has added a little extra grace.

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Delicate perfume on the nose, raspberry ripple on the palate. Some good tannin structure, this needs time as the savoury tannins are still apparent on the finish, although there is a lovely intense hit of dried cherry liqueur at the end.

Alessandro Marchesan

Tasting: Tasmania & Victoria Pinot Noir

Pronounced and intense raspberry and toasty oak nose. Structured and full bodied with high acidity. Complex on aftertaste, it will develop beautifully.
