Frogmore Creek Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Frogmore Creek are most certain a producer to follow. They are not afraid to push the boundaries, and their wines make for some intriguing drinking if you are looking for something a tad outside the norm. This smooth, mellow pinot noir shows some nice red fruits, earth and cinnamon spice on the nose, whilst the medium-bodied palate is quite plush, with spiced fruit flavours, a lick of mocha, slinky tannins, and a smooth, earthy finish. Excellent with game pie.

Winemaker's Notes

The highly acclaimed Frogmore Creek wines are from the cool climate of southern Tasmania, where our sustainably grown grapes benefit from a long growing season. These slowly ripened grapes develop pure fruit flavours, fresh natural acidity and are perfect for making seriously good wines.

Appearance: Ruby red.

Aroma: Concentrated aromas of dark chocolate, mocha and maraschino cherries.

Palate: Rich and full texture supported by some delicate silky tannins, jammy and concentrated fruit.

Cellaring: Cellar for up to 10 years.

Alcohol: 14.0%

Nice fragrance and breadth here, stretching all the way into meaty territory. The palate has some darker, woody characters and fine red fruit flavour that stretches long and straight. The oak is making a strong impression for now but there's plenty of fruit to wrap it in.

Deceptively light colour; an elegant, spicy, savoury pinot with hallmark length; a lovely heart of strawberry and cherry fruit.
