Winstead 2015 Lot 16 Pinot Noir
Winery : Winstead
The deep red colour is showing this wine is still in its youth but it is drinking beautifully now. The nose displays dark fruits with a touch of brambles and spicy oak showing the influence of the new Saury French barriques. The palate is long and smooth with sweet dark cherry and strawberry predominating. This wine is about structure, complexity, elegance and finesse. Try it with roast duck or a gourmet pizza. (Winemaker notes)
Neil and Julieanne Snare grow and make only pinot noir and riesling from their Bagdad vineyard in central/southern Tasmania. The location in the southern Midlands is as unique as the styles of wines for which they’ve become well known. Some of the vine material is 27 years old; it is this that helps to make balanced and stable wines. Neil Snare uses indigenous yeasts and it is obvious from the fine quality of recent releases that he has some particularly fine strains in the Winstead ether.
