5 Red Star Winery ~ James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2019
Tamar Ridge Estate Pinot Noir 2018
Tamar Ridge Estate Kayena Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018
A rich and complex nose showing generous aromas of ripe dark cherry and red berry fruits dominating against a background layer of spice and savoury complexity. It has mouth-filling flavours of ripe raspberry and strawberry. The fruit flavours are balanced by a good concentration of fine, soft, silky tannins and enough acidity to give definition to the finish which is long and persistent with lingering ripe fruit. Match with an olive crusted lamb cutlet served on a tomato and chickpea salad. Or with a roasted squab that has a preserved lemon and thyme stuffing.
