St Mary’s Pinot Noir 2013

Bold aromas force their way out of the glass, spirited - the alcohol making itself known as it tickles the olfactory organ. There’s pomegranate molasses, cherry and menthol-eucalypt here in large quantities. 

The palate has a strange medicinal feel to it - all that eucalyptus and cherry throat sweet - there’s fruit, vanilla oak, all in abundance - a fairly substantive wine.

The fruit itself feels of good quality - but it does get flooded with the regional eucalyptus hints. Not quite doing it for me, the plus sign to see how that oak and eucalypt settles. 87+
