Eileen Hardy Pinot Noir 2012
Dark red in colour with intense hues. Very powerful, complex aromas of blueberry fruit, cherries and spice complemented by hints of oak. A blend of two regions and vineyards in Tasmania. The Derwent Valley produces deeply coloured Pinot Noir of rich intensity, brooding dark voluptuous styles that display dark cherry, strawberry fruit characters, mineral acidity, firm tannin structure and commensurate length of palate. Whilst fruit from the Cranbrook area is more blueberry, steely, yet perfumed, tannins can be gruff, but with superb length.
