Medium density ruby. Complex nose of black raspberry, cherry and savoury undertones of dry mocha and earthy notes. A torrent of blood plum and black cherry dance on the palate intertwined with savoury gamey flavours. The intensity of the fruit and savoury notes is well supported by a fine grain tannin and excellent acidity. A very well balanced palate with the potential to age. Smoked duck breast with roast beetroot and heirloom carrot.
Plantagenet Wines embodies the best of the west with its distinctive wines of finesse and elegance. As a pioneer of the Great Southern region, Plantagenet’s reputation is built on expressive regional wines with an extensive history of classic Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling that are famously long-lived plus a deliciously bountiful Chardonnay.
A ripe and rich pinot with lots of dried-fruit and spice character. Some coffee, too. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Drink now.
JAMES HALLIDAY - HALLIDAY'S WINE COMPANION
Beautifully presented. Fragrant, varietal, almost jellied fruit comes studded with spice and orange peel notes. Tannin is firmish and gently grainy/earthen in a most attractive way. Quite delicious. (Campbell Mattinson)
GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT
It's a bold expression of Pinot Noir, somewhat warm, diffuse and confected, but certainly delivers flavour. A little bitter and twiggy in part, plum and golden Christmas cake, light grip on a decent finish. Some smokiness. Hearty kind of red. Not bad.
