Bald Hills Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012 Review

“Deep, youthful colour. Beautifully fragrant wine; you can smell the aromas well before the glass reaches your nose. Impressive on the nose with an already complex array of ripe fruits, plums, blackberries and currants with sweet spices and more savoury, almost leathery notes. Imagine what this will be like with some time in the bottle!

The palate is intensely flavoured and extremely pure. The plums, blackberries and currants are there, along with those savoury notes that are apparent on the nose. Then there is the influence of good quality oak, beautifully integrated and proportioned to the wine. Velvety texture in the mouth with robust tannins that will see this wine match rich food in its youth and will see it mature well in the bottle over the longer term. Excellent concentration and depth of flavour with surprising complexity showing already. The wine is balanced with juicy acidity and finishes with a lifted fragrance of violets. I love it!” – Colin Ford
