2021 Patrick Sullivan Pinot Noir - GippslandRegular price $58.00
This is why I like Gippsland Wines, they are just so glorious to drink.
The 2021 Patrick Sullivan Gippsland Pinot Noir is a wild ride from the get go. Sourced from vineyards in Maffra Victoria. The aromas on the nose give hints of perfection, layers of purple fruit and soft herbs. Charcuterie, plums and cherries come to the fore. The palate is a soft bed of black cherries resting of soft but firm tannins. More please.
Could drink this for days.
"The 2021 vintage was very low yielding, so some negociant fruit was added into the folio for Pat Sullivan. This source was shared with Xavier Goodridge and Bill Downie. Two sites in this wine, also.
Berry-cherry, floral scented pinot with vibrancy and freshness as calling cards. Lively to taste, light and fresh, dances on the palate and gets shape from a lithe frame of delicate, lacy tannin and crisp acidity. It’s ultra pure and refreshing. Finishes a little quickly, a little sooty, but generally this feels like a lovely and easy to like."
