Levantine Hill Colleen's Paddock Pinot Noir 2014
For the inaugural release of this label, the best of everything has been thrown at it. And in true Levantine Hill style, no expense has been spared. Hand picked and sorted, the fruit was destemmed before some stalks were thrown back into the ferment. New and old French oak was employed for ten months.
Savoury herbs, forest floor/composty aromas and sourish dark cherry. The savoury fruit is the hero here as it wades effortlessly about. A lick of something akin to Jersey caramel lobs up late. Super fine and silky smooth, the finish lingers for what seems an eternity.
A pleasure to taste and no doubt will be keenly sought after - only 1385 made.
