Wine of the Week AU
Riposte The Sabre Pinot Noir 2015, Adelaide Hills, AUD $35
There is no mistaking the variety here. Wafting strawberry and cherry aromatics with a slight touch of char. There is so much flavour on the mid-palate, without being overly fruity. Lovely length and progression of flavour. A wine of immediate appeal, with excellent balance and delicious more-ish flavours. (Screwcap)
