Windowrie Family Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

Whilst the Windowrie wines by the O’Dea family are usually made from nearby Cowra (Central Ranges) this fruit is grown at Orange, on the slopes of Mount Canobolas at 950 metres above sea level, by “like minded vignerons.” The vineyard was planted in 1999 to clones of 114, 115 and MV6.

Light cherry cerise in the glass. Pretty and floral nose: Cherry juice, goji, lightly sliced charcuterie meats, brown spice and pleasing sweet oak. Lean and sinewy: structure showing the elevation influences, along with some youthful cutting acidity. Fruit is firmly in cherry land. The tannins are subtle but provide the right drying finish. Has good “pinosity” and a positive addition to the Windowrie line up.

RRP: $30

Alc: 13%
