Deep and concentrated

Holm Oak Pinot Noir 2017, Tasmania, AUD $35

The colour is medium to full red with a faint tint of purple. The bouquet evokes sweet tobacco and ‘forest floor’, with background berry aromas, and the wine is medium to full-bodied with plenty of depth and concentration for a wine of its modest price. Pleasing grip and length. (Screwcap)
