2021 Pooley Wines Butchers Hill SV Pinot Noir - Coal River Valley Tasmania
- In stock, ready to ship
A wine embodied with notes of brooding fruits, delicate spice, and underlying umami. There’s a savoury impression to the nose with aromas of foraged truffle, dense undergrowth, and tobacco leaf. The palate is splendorous and laden with dried herbs, allspice, dark cherry compote and dark plum. There’s an intrinsic vigour with finely etched tannin and generous weight on the finish.
"The Butchers Hill Vineyard located in Richmond at the historic Belmont Lodge was established in 2003. The vineyard is a prominent feature to the Richmond landscape as it protrudes from the borders of the town. The steep north facing slope of this site starting from 30m-100m above sea level means that it receives some very long sunlight hours, protection from cold southern winds and increased drainage of soils. The ferricrete attribute of the soils not only hold heat and water longer as they are darker but the iron oxide also interacts with the production of flavonoids in the fruit and typically produces wines that are complex and robust. There are currently 6ha of vine planted on this property in total."
