Peregrine Pinot Noir 2007

From the cellar: Peregrine Pinot Noir 2007 – $$$

This bottle has a story: I rocked up at the winery back in ’08 and tasted this wine, and with typical uninformed big-noting, declared it was great! I was then informed that it was somewhat young the wine I was tasting, and it would open out over time and show it’s true quality. Somewhat put in my place, I bought a bottle, and here we are…

It was retrieved in honour of my younger sister arrived back from the UK. Deepest darkest pinot noir, tending to brown off at the edges now. The light fruit florality is gone, due to the ageing, but replaced with complex savoury notes; beguiling. On palate it is smooth, all the tannins have rubbed off; it is all soft black cherry and spice. Yum. Too bad only a 750ml bottle – for these goodies I should really have splashed out on a magnum…
