2013 Circe Pinot Noir

imagePerhaps more compact and less persistent than the single vineyard releases but very good all the same.

Dark and red cherries both sour and glacé are to the fore here. Some sweeter poached strawberry and roasted beetroot. We’ve gone up a gear in terms of power. The tannin is raspy, grainy and layered. A herbal thread still runs through the wine ending on a note of bitter botanical complexity. It’s in the house style, just a little more approachable and generously fruited. 92
