2013 Cape Bernier Tasmanian Pinot Noir Tasmania Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Pinot Noir is the minx of the vineyard, she is notoriously fickle and needs time and nurturing. She’s the kind of grape you have take out several times before she gives out. Winemaker Julian Alcorso has nurtured his Pinot grapes well and turns out a varietal red that is vivid with wild berries and plums. It’s finely balanced between soft tannin weight and acid backbone. A duck would quack its enthusiasm to be matched with this delicate wine.

Winemaker's Notes

This elegant, balanced wine has been open vat fermented with wild yeasts and matured for nine months in French oak puncheons. It presents a range of fruit characters, complemented by fine tannins. The savoury spice flavours are characteristic of this vineyard on the southern East Coast. Cellaring for 3-5 years will allow it to show its full potential. 2013 was an excellent vintage for Tasmanian Pinot and the Cape Bernier Pinot Noir 2013 has all the characteristics that lovers of cool climate Tasmanian Pinot will be looking for, you will not be disappointed.

Expert Reviews

James Suckling (2013 Vintage) says
This wine has really hit its straps in the last two releases (the 2012 was also excellent) and it shows impressively focused red and dark cherry fruits with a handy thread of spice and foresty notes too, really fresh. The palate's evenly shaped, smooth ripe tannins carve out plenty of space for supple red cherry fruit flavors; acidity sits bright and crunchy, really supple and even, builds well. Drink now.
