Clandestine Vineyards Pinot Noir 2021

First Pinot Noir from the Clandestine crew, unsurprisingly sourced from the Adelaide Hills - where their
excellent Pinot Grigio hails.

It's a riot of dark fruit, Plum and black cherry. Yet for that its lithe and supple, a delicious wave of fruit sweeping across the palate.

A fine rasp of tannin, flash of acid for freshness, a generous tail of flavour that is seemingly perpetual in manner. It sees some winemaking love, by way of whole bunch (15%) and some new oak (30%) adding to an overall packaged that is is delicious, balanced, moreish - overall quite a dangerous combination. 91
