Enjoyed with a magnificent leg of lamb from Nigel’s classic butchery at Exeter in Tasmania. This wine has a great length of palate and an amazing aftertaste that lingered. A beautiful Pinot nose with traces of blackberry and it almost smelt sweet. On the palate it was minty, red cherry, violets, meaty, forest floor and prunes. No wonder it won the best wine of the Tasmanian Wine show in 2001, as well as the trophy for the best Pinot Noir.
There are only a few bottles left at $100 each, with a limit of two per customer. When serving please decant and let it breathe for 30 minutes and equilibrate to room temperature. It has thrown a dusty sediment, so let it stand for a day before you open it. Suitable for duck, lamb, veal but not Atlantic salmon.
Let me say, we are quite happy for you not to buy this wine – we’ll drink it ourselves!
