2021 Shaw + Smith Pinot Noir - Adelaide HillsRegular price $54.00
Black cherry, black fruit and gamey charcuterie notes flowing into more black cherries and spice on the palate...matched by silky tannins. Very drinkable.
"Love the tannin structure of this wine. It feels both perfumed and inlaid with fruit, but more impressively it sheets across the wine in a wide spread, integrated and balanced while at the same time being assertive. It gives the wine a bit of class, not that it lacked it in the first place. This is a polished release, with varietal red berried fruit flavours splashed with earth, chicory and dry spice. It’s ultra primary now, as you’d expect, but it feels settled, and so it’s already drinking well. Fruit and the formation of tannin here though are its main quality markers."
