Aromatic and spicy

Cooks Lot Allotment 9 Handpicked Pinot Noir 2015, Orange, AUD $35

A highly attractive pinot noir with enticing aromatics and flavours. Slightly smoky with dried herbs, ripe strawberries and a hint of tamarillo. Distinctly spicy is the palate, with bright red fruits and fine, well-integrated tannin. It is a satisfying, well-made wine, not over-fruity, that is reflective of the synergy between the Orange region and pinot noir. Decant prior to drinking to bring out its best. (Screwcap)
