Winstead 2016 Lot 7 Pinot Noir
Winery : Winstead
A dark red colour with a touch of blue around the rim. This wine is still well in its youth. The nose displays dark fruits of the forest and spicy oak showing the influence of the new Suary French barriques. The palate is deep and rich, with sweet dark cherry, raspberry, plum and some spicy oak influences. The structure of this wine is immediately evident showing both weight and length. This wine is one for the cellar as it has been built for the long haul. Venison or wallaby accompany this wine beautifully.
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.
