Polperro Talland Hill Pinot Noir 2015
This is all hugs and kisses and seductive caresses - damn Pinot can be extraordinary. Here's one for that list. Of the three Single Vineyard 2015 Polperro releases, this is well out in front as my favourite.
As I go to the website to seek the finer details, the Sold Out sign is clearly fixed. Why am I not surprised?
Each of the three Single Vineyards has a different perspective - this Talland Hill sits 170m above and is north facing.
Tasting the three releases blind, this certainly got the heart racing from the outset. It's finer, more elegant and polished in comparison. Just a little tighter, the fruit is a fraction darker and denser. Earthy and mushroom compost mix it with savoury appeal. Coiling around the mouth, it leaves an imprint that's hard to remove. I suppose that's why the punters ran to it so quickly.
