Went down to meet some friends for a "couple" after work in Canary Wharf last night to find a bottle of this on the table. Having had previous experience of my colleagues' taste in plonk I was, frankly, terrified. What a pleasant surprise when I had when I poured myself a glass. It was a lovely bright red, with aromas of red berries, cherry and light spice underlined by notes of tobacco and a hint of leather. Lovely acidity and a big splash of fruit on the tongue. Great stuff for drinking outside on a sunny evening, but beware! This wine shows the deadly combination of easy drinking with a dangerous alcohol level of 14%! Needless to say I am sat at my desk nursing my head this morning. I will, however, be ordering a half case of this wine shortly.

Nose: cherry, spice. Some candied cherry notes. Some grassiness emerging with air? Palate: cherry, spice. Ripe, rich fruit. Firm, dry tannins. Good fresh acidity, quite lively. A little short on the palate, and a bit one-dimensional - good but not great.

    It began with a bit of a barnyard smell, not so much manure but more of wet hay that has been trampled by the horses a bit, plus a bit of a cherry smell towards the end. Very complex smell, too bad it didn’t follow through with the taste. It was very flat and had just the cherry flavor and a bit of over powered by the alcohol.

    My bottle might have suffered a bit from the heat, but still liked the wine. Mine was a bit astringent (probably heat damage). The flavors were great though, good pinot grape without too much fruit or alcohol.

    How often do you see a Pinot Noir from Tasmania? Try this earthy red wine - it's an opportunity that may not come around again for a while! Full of spicy berry fruit flavors.

    How often do you see a Pinot Noir from Tasmania? This bottle represents an opportunity that may not come around again for a while. It is an earthy red wine, full of spicy berry fruit flavors. The few years of bottle age have added an extra dose of complexity.

    How often do you see a Pinot Noir from Tasmania? This bottle represents an opportunity that may not come around again for a while. It is an easy-to-drink red, full of soft, spicy berry fruit flavors.

    Tasmanias Tamar Ridge keeps impressing us with their successful production of beautifully balanced Pinots. This bottle aged wine shows intigrated red fruits, dark berries, oak spice and bright acidity.
