Bicknell FC 'Applecross' Pinot Noir 2019Regular price $47.00
Purity of fruit and an exploration of terroir describes this wine best. Letting the vineyard speak. Berries fight for space with more elemental flavours of forest floor and woody mushrooms. Spice drives the finish with tannins wrapping it all into a nice parcel. Juicy and moreish, definitely...more please.
"The Applecross wines are always lovely and while $45 is not to be sneezed at it has to be said, in the overall scheme, they represent outstanding value. These are wines to latch onto.
This 2018 Pinot is dry and twiggy but the fruit is there, all juicy and jaunty, with cranberry aspects in with the red cherry, and a sheet of spice-studded tannin extending from the mid-palate onwards. There’s a touch of Aussie Bush Spice to the highlights here but the shadows are alive with complex flavour. This is one of those lighter styles of pinot that the Yarra does so well. Yes. This is good."
