Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir Yarra Valley 2007

Member Review by kboesel:

My wine club did a Pinot Noir tasting this month. This was one of the recommended wines for the tasting, but our wine buyer was hesitant as Australia is not known for Pinot Noir. I poured it first, expecting it to be the worst of the 5 we tasted. WOW! This is one terrific Pinot! Very lush and flavorful, without a harsh finish like some Pinots can have. We drank both bottles and it was definitely the favorite of the night - even more so than the Oregon Pinot Noir! This one converted those in the group who did not like Pinot Noir. This is a must try for all Pinot lovers out there and one that I will keep in my cooler at all times.

Since its first vintage in 1985, Coldstream Hills has grown to be one of the Australia’s leading small wineries, with a reputation for producing an outstanding range of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot Varietal and Reserve wines. Situated in the cool and beautiful Yarra Valley, about one hour’s drive east of Melbourne, its steep, close-planted vineyards have become a signature of the region. Coldstream Hills maintains its small winery essence with most of the wine literally being “hand made”. The fruit is hand pruned and partially hand picked; the wine is made mainly using small open fermenters (of three to four tonnes capacity for the red wines, while the whites are principally barrel fermented). Winemaking techniques and philosophies haven’t changed with the growth in production either; all designed to produce elegant wines with a long finish. Read less

The 2007 Pinot Noir was aged for nine months in a mix of new (31%) and seasoned French oak. It is light to medium ruby-colored with a Beaujolais-like nose featuring fresh cranberries and cherries. On the palate spice and toasty oak notes emerge. The ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from Victoria in Australia. 2007 Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir 750ml

Medium bodied style with fine silky tannins and length. Vibrant fruit characters of cherry, strawberry and blueberry are evident with stalky savoury notes and spice. Fragrant cherry and blueberry fruit characters with underlying gaminess and spice. Toasty oak is evident adding further complexity.
