Over the Way Pinot Noir 2014

I'm still looking for something from Sunbury to hit the spot and despite this putting up a brave show, it's not it.

There's a warmth to the wine which I just can't shake. Sure there's dark cherries, plum compote and undergrowth, but there's a firmness about the mid-palate which leads to a warming character. Said to be better with age, it did open up a little more aromatically on the second day of tasting and seemed a little lighter in the mouth, but the finish was much the same. I could feel the acid bite on my teeth too.

I'd prefer others.
