What music would you play to Pinot?
Oakridge Pinot Noir 2010
There is a mix of sourness and ripe fruit which contrasts perfectly. All I need is a little duck sausage and I am in heaven. This wine is made in a enjoy now style but it retains a degree of sophistication rare at this price point. The nice furry tannins flow effortlessly carrying the flavours of spicy cranberry, cut herbs, cinnamon and raspberry coulis. It is nice to see the entry level wine of Oakridge achieve so much easy going drink-ability. Give it a little while in the cellar and the quality should go up a bit.
Drink: 2012 - 2017
