expert reviews about
2012 Tuck's Ridge Mornington Peninsula Pinot Noir
James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Relatively light colour, although deeper than that of Buckle; the colour, bouquet and palate all sing from the same page, with light red cherry/strawberry fruit deriving some complexity from gossamer tannins and a twitch of French oak.
James Halliday (2015 Vintage) says
If you can't afford the Buckle Pinot, this is a handy Pinot that is open for business and ticks all the boxes as any good Pinot from '15 should. Bright and juicy red fruits are framed by spicy flavours ex French oak and superfine tannins. Will come into full flower by '25 and charm the socks off you.Drink by 2028
Campbell Mattinson (2014 Vintage) says
Clearly reductive but just as clearly complex and lengthy. There's a lot going on here and carries you along with it. Smoky herbs, twigs, forest floor and black cherry. There's some velvet to the texture and more than a little tang to the acidity. It makes you want to like it and then gives you good reason to.Drink by 2026
