Wimbaliri Close Planted Pinot Noir 2010

Wimbaliri is a winery from Canberra that was established in 1988. The vineyard is planted to a variety of Shiraz, Cabernet, Chardonnay and Merlot. The area seems to be developing a reputation for producing top quality spicy Shiraz and structured Chardonnays.

Full in weight and ripe in the flavour spectrum with notes of dark cherries, bubble gum, cinnamon and plum. The fruit is definately on show and there is a warm thought the mid-palate that takes away from the whole enjoyment of the wine. On the other side of the coin, the length is beautiful and the wine feels conforting to taste. I would go on and say that this is a good entry into the world of Pinot if you are coming from a Shiraz background.
