Tolpuddle Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013

Tasmania should be one of the best places to grow Pinot Noir in Australia due to the climate. The team as Shaw and Smith bought this vineyard in 2011 and it is said that it was one of the best vineyards in the area.

Cherry bomb with a lovely green peppercorn number coming through underneath. It is full in the mouth but does have a nice line and length of structure woven into the fabric of the wine. The wine is a mix of ripe confected cherries and the more cooler Pinot notes of dried herbs, leaf litter and star anise. I think the wine was make with some stalks in the mix and I think it was a perfect idea as it has added complexity and structure to the wine.
