Castle Rock Estate Pinot Noir 2017

From talented winemaker Rob Diletti, in the sub-region of Porongurup in the Great Southern GI of Western Australia, one of the few climates outside of the usual suspects that produces palatable pinot.

Castle Rock Estate, Pinot Noir, Porongurup, 2017

Chinotto, thyme, blood orange, stemmy cherry ice with a ferrous touch too. Delicate florals with the right amount of spiced lift at the end. Has pinosity, presence and personality. Fine tannin and delicious textural interplays with the fresh acidity.

RRP: $38
Alc: 13%
Rating: 18.5/20
