Shaw + Smith Pinot Noir 2017

Strawberry, a wilder and more savoury edge to things too. Perhaps a hint of rhubarb, with some stalk and woody herb.

Soft, supple, a cleanness and very open palate - particularly compared to the somewhat funkier aromatic greeting. 

Tannins are silken and velvety, cushioned as you roll the wine around the palate. Fresh as you like, good acidity flows and provides a gentle undercurrent of energy just perpetuating the wine so. 

Perhaps not the most most structured of profound of Pinots, the product of a cool and long vintage, but certainly much to enjoy and recommend here 91
