Clare Halloran and Adam McCallum advise that 2018 was “definitely a more challenging vintage, heat and humidity combined to increase disease pressure early on, and warmer days and nights required constant monitoring and early picking.” No need for such pessimism.
TarraWarra Estate, Pinot Noir, Rosé, Yarra Valley, 2018
Fresh and vibrant, considering the ‘warning’ from the winemaking team. Light quince paste, rosewater, ripe strawberry, sackcloth and blood orange citrus. Dry, savoury with very good grip and an elegant fruit structure. Finishes clean with a peppery spice. Food friendly plus.
