Home Hill Wines Estate Pinot Noir 2016

Winery: Home Hill Wines
Region: Southern Tasmania
Wine: Estate Pinot Noir
Variety: Pinot Noir
Vintage: 2016
UOM: 750ml

This wine I tried alongside neighbouring Sailor Seeks Horse Pinot Noir 2016, with the local duo Paul and Gilli Lipscombe responsible for winemaking of both. The take home message was the SSH a restrained, sleeker expression, imbued with peppery-herbal detail, and this HH, seemingly harvested later, a rounder, fuller, richer expression. Both with great merit from the far south of Tasmania.

Certainly for the set that likes pinot with some grunt. Hearty, swarthy red of concentration, ripeness and depth. Rich scents of stewed berries and cherries, touch of kirsch, sniff of pepper, sweet spice dusted and a whiff of clove. The palate teeters towards dry reddish with clove oak, red currant, dried cranberry characters, some plushness and a corduroy textured finish. A pinot of gusto. Drink 2017-2021.
