Cracka Review

Here's a bonny pinot noir that is just bursting with red fruited goodness. It's all strawberries and red plums on the nose, with appealing whiffs of earthiness and exotic spice. The palate is medium-bodied and bright with bucket loads of red berry flavours, mellow tannins, balanced acidity, and a decent spiced-up finish. It's outstanding value, but don't keep it, just drink it!

Winemaker's Notes

Pinot Noir is a demanding grape variety. Its flavours degrade when temperatures rise above 30C. In mainland Australia it ripens in January or February, the warmest months of the year. There is a tiny part of Victoria and Western Australia and a good part of Tasmania and New Zealand where success is possible.

Happs I Series Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Light but brilliant crimson; has greater purity of varietal flavour than any Margaret River pinot I have ever previously tasted; crisp red fruits and spice are at the heart of a wine tailor-made for immediate drinking.

Ray Jordan (2011 Vintage) says
A light bodied strongly fruit-driven pinot noir displaying some attractive varietal raspberry and cherry aromas. A touch of confectionary toffee apple on the nose and a supple light bodied palate. Made for current drinking.

Light-bodied style, but very well balanced and long; gently savoury fruit. Skilled winemaking.
