Does the quality of the Pinot depend on the wine-maker or the vineyard?
Ocean 8 Pinot Noir 2010
Pristine flavour delivered with an undergrowth feeling that oozes out. It isn’t a funky dirty wine as it possesses plenty of fruit flavour but it does have an extra something lurking. The profile is sour with some smoky fennel flavours finishing everything off. The flavours that came to mind were sour cherries and the essence of raspberries with a bright core of acidity running through the middle of my palate. Drink now? Yes but will develop nicely in the bottle.
