19 Crimes the Punishment Pinot Noir South Eastern Australia 2017

External Review by We Speak Wine:

2017 PINOT NOIR: Nineteen crimes turned criminals into colonists. Upon conviction, British rogues, guilty of at least one of the 19 crimes, were sentenced to live in Australia, rather than death. For the rough-hewn prisoners who made it to shore, a new world awaited. As pioneers in a frontier penal colony, they forged a new country and new lives, brick by brick. This wine is borne of the rules they broke and the culture they built. And like our legendary rogues, it’s a taste that’ll live forever in infamy. TASTING NOTES: The colour of this 2017 Pinot Noir is a medium intense burgundy with a youthful purple rim. Lifted notes of cherry and strawberry fruit complement rich vanillin overtones giving warm and inviting aromas on the nose of this wine. The palate is medium-bodied with soft, round tannins, cherry and strawberry fruit with sweetness which complements the vanilla and spice oak undertones. All these elements combined create a well-balanced, enjoyable wine with a long finish. THE GROWING SEASON: Vintage 2017 had a cool start, with bud break through flowering and fruit set taking its time, in some locations delaying the start of the season by several weeks. Patience and a close eye in the vineyards allowed fruit to develop slowly, enhancing complexity and developing layers of flavor. Harvest was also late, with isolated weather that was well managed by vineyard teams who got dust on their boots while keeping a close eye on the fruit. pH: 3.58 Acidity: 5.7 g/L Alcohol: 13.5%
