Austins Six Foot Six Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Well if this isn't one of the best value Pinot Noirs on the market, then I am a monkey's uncle. Elegant, spicy cranberry fruit with some earthy nuances, it is silky, fine grained and made for some Chinese duck pancakes.

Winemaker's Notes

Bright cherry to mid-red, gleaming in the glass. Enticing, perfumed aromas of fresh plums, dark and maraschino cherries in league with a tamarind-led savoury complexity and a violet petal or two. All this saturates the senses in true pinot noir fashion; vivacious and alluring.

That momentum continues on the palate where a refreshing acidity details the varietal characters fulfilling the promise of the bouquet. The cherry, plum and spice flavours are supported by soft tannins in a structure as inviting as it is satisfying. As with all fine wine, all facets of this pinot noir persist on the aftertaste.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
Very bright colour tells of the wine to come in this entry point pinot for Austin's; the bouquet is full of red flowers, red fruits and spices, the flavours of the silky and vibrantly fresh fruit tracking the path set by the bouquet. A lovely pinot offering outstanding value. 13.5% alc.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Bright, clear crimson-purple; all in all, a very impressive wine given its price and vintage; gently spice red and black fruits run through the long and well-balanced palate, and the varietal expression is not in doubt.
