Nose: Ripe, dark red fruits of black cherry, under growth, wild and sweet thyme. New oak and older French signatures. Medium to medium+ complexity.
Palate: Dry with ripe, youthful signatures of cherry fruits and oak spices, medium+ acidity and tannins. Some tarter more youthful cranberry notes on the finish add some length and charm. Overall a solid and enjoyable example of Bendigo Pinot Noir. I expect this wine will age and mature well over the next 2-4 years.
Tasted this wine again over 2 days and found it benefited from a little extra Oxygen. Lovely with the meal we had that evening.
