The Details

Tasting Note Initial blue fruits, cola and rhubarb aromas are joined by hints of rose petal, peppercorn and baked blueberry pie. The fine, fresh, red fruits palate is imbued with hints of jasmine, darker cherries and gingerbread on the long, finish of this deliciously complex wine.
Best Enjoyed With Strozzapreti pasta with roast pumpkin, pine nuts and pangrattato. Miso crusted Atlantic salmon with wholegrain fried rice, shitake mushroom and nori.
Treatment The fruit was handpicked, 12% of the bunches were placed directly into the fermenter with the balance being destemmed and placed on top for fermentation. Natural fermentation commenced after four days and the must was plunged up to three times daily. The wine was pressed and placed into French oak barriques (30% new) for 10 months. Malolactic fermentation occurred in spring and the wine was blended in February prior to bottling.

Accolades

Aromatically detailed
A bright mid-ruby hue with aromatically detailed red plum, red apple and raspberry fruits leaping from the glass. Hints of exotic spices, pressed flowers, Chinese barbecue shop, leaf litter, mushroom risotto, amaro herbs and game meats. Bright and focused with a lovely fruit and acid tension, fine, chalky tannins and a mineral-laden acid drive. There is a vitality and shape to this wine that impresses greatly, finishing savoury and sustained.
Dave Brookes

Luxurious and supple
Very expressive, damson plum and ripe strawberry characteristics mix with an earthy, peaty, aniseed edge and some violet/floral notes. The mouthfeel is luxurious and supple. A joy to drink in its youth with more than a little grunt for a pinot but still sexy and delicious, with a fine, long, lingering finish.
Paul Edwards

Concentration and focus
Dense and with more weight than others in the Dalrymple Single Site range, there is a concentration and focus to this Coal River Pinot Noir. Unlike previous releases I've seen, this is straight up and down. A wine that does the job well, but the lights are on and the party hasn't started yet. Those muted feels will have guests staring into their glasses hopeful for excitement. Notwithstanding, it's a respectable Pinot highlighted by red and dark cherries, red apple and cola. Woodsy and Christmas cake spices along with some cedar add interest, but when your siblings have the glitz and glamour, that's where you want to be. You'll find me dancing with Ouse. Drink to five years+
Steve Leszczynski

A solid, well structured pinot noir
Quite a deep colour with a good tint of purple; there are dried herb/nettle, cola and brandied cherry aromas, while the palate is quite intense and a little lean in its shape, the tannins assertive and very drying, leaving a trace of firmness on the long-lasting follow-through. A solid, well structured pinot noir that could reward a little more time in the bottle.
