Tuck's Ridge Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir is a very difficult variety to grow. The grower needs to work constantly in the vineyard even when the weather is kind. In 2011 the weather was wet and cold so only the best estate and vineyards performed well.

Oh so light and fragrant with notes of cherries and forest mulch that have been rolled in spice. These flavours continue on the palate but they are joined by cinnamon and raspberry coulis. As with many of the 2011 wines they are light and a little dilute from the mid palate which makes them easy to drink now. For the money it is pretty good and will get you through until the 2012s are released.
