2017 Precipice Willow Lake Vineyard Pinot Noir

2017 Precipice Willow Lake Vineyard Pinot Noir

Never judge a pinot on numbers or colour. This is almost 1% higher in alcohol than Stewart's Vineyard, yet it tastes riper and has more weight - and is the better wine, although not by much. More to the point, both are in the same really attractive style.

DESCRIPTION
  • Side hustle for Oakridge winemaker Marty Singh, but give it time and he might just make this a full time gig; the wines are certainly worth it. Exceptional Pinot from the very famed Willow Lake vineyard (Oakridge, Adrian Rodda, De Bortoli, Rob Dolan, Out of Step, Arfion, Santolin) 2017 being a cooler vintage.

    Producing a beautifully pale style, with a menagerie of fragrances, and a wicked little lick of gossamer threaded tannins and spice. Much love to be had here. If only all Pinot at this price was as eminently smashable.

    Precipice is a fairly new venture, but it already has a cult like following from the Sommelier and wine bar set in Sydney and Melbourne. Launch in to this stuff if you can.

    TASTING NOTES

    Light, ethereal, strawberry husk and fragrant cherry driven Pinot. Lots to like.

  • REVIEWS

    'Light to medium red-purple colour, very bright and youthful. The bouquet is shy and reserved but clean and fragrant, with red cherry to strawberry nuances. A light, almost ethereal pinot of considerable charm.'
