Dalrymple Vineyards. Pipers River, Tasmania.

Single Site Swansea Pinot Noir

Characteristic Swansea fruit and oak spice are first evident on the nose, but if patience allows, then with two to three hours of gentle breathing (decanting is not required), these aromas build with dark floral notes, above richer deep plum, blueberries and cinnamon. The fruit has lovely palate presence, with rich texture giving depth to vibrant dark fruits, soft plush tannins and natural acidity providing balance, length and generosity. Careful cellaring over 8-12 years will richly reward those looking for the complexity that completes a fine Pinot Noir.
