Kiltynane Estate Pinot Noir 2013

It's a privilege to be able to see labels such as this from the smaller wineries and regions. The bonus is the pleasant surprise which can be delivered and this sure falls into that category.

There's a funky side to this Bellarine Peninsula biodynamic and wild fermented Pinot. Pan juices, mushroom compost and red flower aromas shift to a dark fruit flavours. This is on the denser side though still expresses finesse. The fruit is wrapped up by spices which tickle the mouth playfully. Some textural appeal adds interest with tannins which are a little drying on a long finish.

Topping up the glass a second time wasn't a decision which needed a lot of thought.

Have in the medium term.

Very good.
