Derwent Estate Calcaire 2015 Pinot Noir
Winery : Derwent Estate
Derwent Estate is on the elevated banks of the Derwent River at Granton, north of Hobart. The Mt Nassau property, which is home to Derwent Estate, has been in the Hanigan family since 1913; wine production is a recent addition to traditional farming activities.
Only produced in exceptional years, Calcaire refers to the calcareous soil which underpin the block of mature vines.
This wine shows lovely concentration. The nose is filled with dark cherries, raspberries and spicy oak, with the palate very inviting with more cherry, and well refined tannin and lengthy finish.
