Riversdale Estate Pinot Noir 2014

This is Riversdale's mid-range Pinot Noir which comes off their 120ha vineyard in Tasmania's Coal River Valley, 20km from Hobart.

You get a sense this is a wine comfortable to be in its own skin - just good drinking Pinot.

Aromatic herbs gets things going. A savoury style but the balance is what grabs my attention. Reds fruits fill out well and are framed by those savoury characters before a gentle star anise and pepper spice roll through to a sustained finished. Lots of satisfaction here. I'd have a couple of glasses easy.

Drink now to eight years.

91/100 - Very good
