Shottesbrooke Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2016


A simple Pinot not particularly setting my senses alight. A fair drink. Without being disrespectful, those with basic tastes would enjoy this most.

I'm still grappling with Adelaide Hills Pinot. I've had this conversation with a number of people and I'm yet to see one to make me want to scream from the hilltops - pardon the pun.
Sure this Shottesbrooke example shows varietal characters and is easy drinking, but its lack of depth and flair and doesn't hit my excitement button. There's certainly a place for wines like this in the market and I know of a couple of people who aren't red wine fans but the soft delivery without too much punch would please.

Would I buy it? No. I'd battle to finish a glass.

Drink now to three years.
