d'Arenberg The Feral Fox Pinot Noir 2014

There's always an interesting story behind the d'Arenberg labels. The Feral Fox is named after those unwelcome guests which come into the vineyard and eat the lower hanging bunches. Sourced from the Adelaide Hills, this wine spends twelve months in old French oak.

Overripe strawberries, rhubarb, red cherries and stalky aromas. Fruit is soft but tight. It mouth watering, drawing saliva. Tight with crunchy acidity and fine tannins holding the fort.

Although a 2014, it just seems young and certainly isn't in its prime. Either leave it for a few years or spend your $30 elsewhere. I'd go the latter.
