Caledonia Australis Pinot Noir 2007
Out of stock
This leading Gippsland pinot noir specialist has done well here. Newly released 07 vintage has perfume delicacy and depth of flavour definitely up there with Australia & NZ ‘s best. I much preferred this in a blind tasting to Ata Rangi ‘s Crimson pinot at $38. We were bowled over by the quality of this wine for the price. You will be too!
Brilliant ruby colour. great depth. Juicy. ripe berry aromas. perfectly balanced by savoury/mineral characters. demonstrate the great potential of Leongatha Pinot Noir in an exceptional year such as 2007. At this stage. a touch of new French oak is the only hint of winemaking influence in a wine so strongly expressive of its region and the 07 vintage. Rich. ripe and supple. the palate displays bright berry fruit. a deliciously fleshy. juicy texture and great flavour persistence. Fresh acidity and ripe tannins frame the mid palate. which carries through to a long. complex finish.
