Carillion Vineyard is situated on the volcanic slopes of Mt Canobolas in the Orange region. This elegant cool climate Pinot Noir is only produced in years of exceptional fruit quality, the last being 2009. Our 2012 displays a nose of delicate red fruits, balanced by a complex palate with subtle hints of Turkish delight and soft tannins lingering on the finish. This wine is drinking well now and will reward cellaring until 2020.
Peter Bourne say...
Colour: Bright garnet red
Smell: Blood plum and winter berries with a lilt of fresh truffles and Middle Eastern spices
Taste: Medium weight yet deeply flavoured with lots of exotic red berry fruit and savoury, earthy elements. Oak is whispering its message while mild-mannered tannins interplay with the juicy acidity to lift the wine and extend its finish.
Cellaring: Now to 2021.
Food: Quail prepared in the Vietnamese manner with lots of white pepper spices.
