Nunc Pinot Noir 2017
“Mellow bouquet of ripe strawberry, ripe raspberry, plums, sweet spice. Really juicy in the palate, clean, refreshing, kind of strawberry kissed pinot noir. Soft, supple, transparent, easy to drink, not a lot going on, but hey, it’s for necking with gusto”. 88 points. Mike Bennie. The Wine Front. Jan 2017.
“A fine-boned, nuanced Pinot high on the drinkability scale, though with enough intricacy and structure to keep us coming back to the glass. It leads with aromatic jubey red, floral-tinged fruits. The palate is a supple, light to medium bodied style with cherry and raspberry measured fruit nicely by silky tannins and sustaining acidity, which gives length on the finish”. Winemaker’s notes.
Light and delicate, with cherries and strawberries - a hint of liquorice on the nose and pepper on the palate. What you get at the front is what you get on the finish - sunny, juicy red fruit. But it’s much finer than I’m used to from the Yarra, and with its lovely fine tannins, definitely a long way from the muscly Pinot of central Otago. So drinkable and so good for the money!
