Shaw & Smith 2012 Pinot Noir: Tasting Note

Medium intensity on the nose, with ripe strawberries, sweet spice/white pepper, Shaw & Smith 2012 Pinot Noirand an attractive whiff of Pinot funky earthiness.  A fresh and lively style, with firm tannins and but still a silky mouthfeel. On the palate there’s more forest floor, salami and cured meats, complemented by plenty of ripe cherry fruit.

Next year the Shaw & Smith Pinot Noir will include fruit from a newly acquired vineyard in Lenswood (Adelaide Hills). It will be interesting to see the contrast with this addition.
