Windowrie Family Reserve Pinot Noir 2017

Inland New South Wales is not the first region that springs to mind for Pinot Noir, yet here we are with proper clones and a 20 year old vineyard.

Windowrie, Family Reserve Pinot Noir, Orange, 2017

unnamed(1)

Far more robust on the nose than the 2015, with sweet oak over deep cherry, cherry wood, raspberry and smoky oak with plenty of fallen leaf matter. Some breadth through the front body before spicy and stalky red fruits, dark cherry and fine grained tannin. Is definitely pinot noir, just lacking a little delicacy for mine.

RRP: $35
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 16.75/20
