Hollick Pinot Noir 2014


Not your usual Pinot Noir territory but this works, and I like it. Only two Pinots come from the Coonawarra region, the other from Patrick.

The fruit here has a little more punch - a bit more density and deep rooted. It's well balanced and has a charming consistency about it. Sure, it's not the delicate and pristine type you get from other regions, but this is good value and solid drinking. Apart from usual varietal traits, I even detect pickled beetroot and balsamic like aromas. There's a little red apple acid crunch too. I'd have a glass or two with ease.

Drink now to eight years.
