Wine of the Week AU

Sinapius Estate Grown Close Planted Pinot Noir 2019, Tasmania, AUD $57

From a top producer in the Pipers River district, this is a serious pinot of structure and intensity.

There are spicy aromas recalling nutmeg and clove, plus dark fruits and almond meal. The palate is powerful, concentrated and firm with ample tannin. A superb wine that is just starting to come into its own and has great potential. Give it plenty of air for best results if drinking young. (Screwcap)
