Brooding nose with hints of struck match, cedar oak and cherries. Firm, savoury style of Pinot with powdery tannins, meaty, cedar and a touch of bouquet garni flavours. Acid comes at the back palate to drive home a fresh finish hinting at longevity. Sourced from MV 6 clone, close planted, from the1988 vineyard established by Garry Farr.
Clyde Park F Block Pinot Noir 2019, Geelong, Vic
Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
