Pinot Noir 2010

$50.00

Mid red with garnet hue.

The nose shows delicate red fruit aromas, dusty oak and the ethereal pinot perfume.

The palate has sweet upfront fruit but finishes dry and savoury showing its tight structure. An understated wine that has all the hallmarks of a good food wine.

NB: This wine has developed a harmless deposit of tartrate crystals. In some instances these have aggregated and formed floccules. These will quickly settle to the bottom of the bottle….just pour the last glass carefully!

  1. Still very fragile & yet to flesh out, this elegant, supple and translucently bright pinot boasts genuine length, balance & structure. Scented with spicy, floral aromas of red cherries, raspberries, strawberries and creamy vanilla oak, it reveals a youthful herbal aspect. Supported by dusty tannins and fine-grained, cedary oak, its long, even palate of bright cherry/berry flavour finishes with focus and a gentle acidity. 92

    A deep red in the glass, a nose that gives roasted meat, dark plum and rhubarb; sweeter baking spice aromatics are a secondary thought.
    Grey Sands hold their wines back for release which given their propensity to age and ability to evolve from what can be an austere and tightly bound core should be commended.
    The 2010 is in a great place now, but will easily reward another decade in the cellar, the palate gives cherry, wild strawberry and rhubarb compote with grainy tannins that has an earthen note that works with sage and sweeter nutmeg and cinnamon spice. The wine has both expansive and drying length to finish.

    Don’t you just love it when a winery is happy to hold back their wines so you get something that has some age. How many wineries do you know do that? There wouldn’t be many.
    Even though this wine has 6 years under it’s belt, it is still so obviously a young pinot noir. You just have to look at the colour!
    Aromas are such that you feel as though you’ve walked into the Kate’s Berry Farm at Swansea (Tasmania) during harvest with your nose in bucket of freshly picked cherries while chewing on a plum.
    Tasting this wine is no different. Gee it seems fresh on the palate too! We had it with some Italian meatballs and some herbs presented themselves so as not to be overlooked regardless of their small part in proceedings.
    This may not sound normal but it has a sweetish but slightly dry finish that tickles the taste buds for quite a long time.
    My guess is the ‘Richter’ scale has been gently nudged by this Pinot and will attract the attention of the media and punters alike before too long. Get in quick people.
