O'Leary Walker Pinot Noir 2012

I really enjoyed this wine. It's very approachable and ready to drink now. Well weighted and not as light as some. Perhaps that little extra body is what drew me to it more and more.

A hit of strawberry jam on toast first up got my attention. A few more swirls of the glass and classic Pinot traits rolled through; buckets of dark cherries with a hint of pepper.

Well balanced with good fruit, it was still drinking very well on the third day I had it open. Interestingly the aromatics seemed to grow another leg at this stage and they developed in a berry basket type. A moreish length capped off a well made wine.

An easy drinking type which can be pleasantly enjoyed on its own.
