Red cherries, strawberries, spiced plums, violets, cloves, dried herbs, undergrowth and a touch of smoke on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with firm, tight-grained tannins. Firm, mineral and tea-like tannin quality. Very focused and structured. Needs time. Try after 2025. From biodynamically grown grapes.
Go Patagonia Pinot, go! Poached strawberry, cinnamon dusted plums, mint and violets, ferrous and stony, new leather and blonde tobacco, liquorice root. Medium-bodied, succulent red fruit and spiced plum, fine-grained spread of tannin, black tea perfume, and a grainy savoury finish of superb length. Distinctive, and while the Pinot Noir signature is firm, it’s quite clearly from ‘somewhere other’. Outstanding. Drink 2024 - 2030+.
