Lenswood Hills Pinot Noir 2010, Adelaide Hills
The second of three wines purchased from the renowned Pike and Joyce Wines, this Pinot is made from grapes grown on the steep slopes of the Lenswood vineyard, and displays the typical elegance and character of grapes grown in this cool climate region. The wine is floral and fruity with a long finish.

Light garnet with Ruby tones. Medium + intensity showing classic Burgundian notes of rhubarb, violets, oyster mushrooms, cranberry, cherry, strawberries & earth tones. Lets add a classic Pine needles from Oregon style Pinots too. The taste is dry, med- tannins, med acidity, long length, med- body & well balanced. The taste is wonderful. The red berry notes from the nose are rich on the taste, and there is some spiciness on the finish that gives the wine some more complexity on the taste. The 14% alcohol is well integrated. This Pinot taste more like a $40 bottle of wine, not the usual Australian Pinot. Lightly chill this & enjoy with roasted duck.

Wow, this is a great Pinot Noir. Very smooth and easy to drink. A solid value at this price point. Tasted February 2013.
Raspberry, spices, dark chocolate, and earthiness on the nose. Juicy and very fruity, but with slightly green tannins. Good value.
Very nice with grilled salmon. Worth a repeat buy (or 2). Nicest Pinot I have had at this price, however I do not drink many pinot noirs.
