Wine of the Week: Savaterre Pinot Noir 2012

Savaterre Pinot Noir 2012

Awesome wine !! Bags full of character from this Organic Beechworth Pinot.

Nose of red cherry, mushroom, forest floor and dried leave characters from the whole bunch ferment (grapes fermented with stalks and all).

Velvet smooth texture on the palate with under-ripe red cherry, brown spice, leafy-ness and real earthy tones with subtle mushroom again. Super fine tannin keeps it in balance with an excellent length to boot. This has real depth and complexity!

Could do with a few years to be even better I reckon. Lovely stuff to cellar or to have now if your like me and couldn't wait. Recommend decanting.

Savaterre wines ain't exactly cheap but this is no pay for the hype type wine. Its the real deal and worth it.

Also worth trying from the range are the Shiraz and their knock-out Chardonnay.

NB. Savaterre vineyards are farmed using Organic principles and thus proclaim to be Organic, but are not yet certified.
