Patrick Estate Pinot Noir 2016

Special Price $20.00 Regular Price $29.00
James Halliday who scored this vintage 95 points has said in previous tasting notes for Patrick Pinot ‘there is no longer any doubt that Mount Gambier, the coolest region in SA, is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to Pinot Noir.’ We found this wine delicate, complex, savoury and ethereal, with vibrant cherry and strawberry aromas, cherry, red fruits and cinnamon on the palate. At $29 retail this is a steal, particularly when you consider it is possible to pay over a hundred bucks for pinots with lesser accolades.

Mount Gambier is a mecca for cave diving in Australia thanks to its multiplicity of waterlogged limestone caves… the same limestone that imparts acidity and minerality to the regions wines. Mount Gambier also features many patches of nutrient dense, volcanic soils, spreading outwards from the regions iconic Blue Lake – a volcano which last erupted 6000 years ago. These soils are amongst the youngest in Australia and allow the production of powerful, savoury, mineral driven and complex wines. We’ve seen a recent global gravitation towards the majestic volcanic soil wines of Etna, Sicily, Campania and more we are seeing increasing interest in the wines of Mount Gambier… It doesn’t hurt that Halliday has scored the last three vintages of Patrick Pinot 95 or 96 out of a hundred and praising their Pinot with the following…‘there is no longer any doubt that Mount Gambier, the coolest region in SA, is a force to be reckoned with when it comes to Pinot Noir.’

If there is one combination to look for when browsing for a good medium-bodied red, Coonawarra, terra rosa and Cabernet Sauvignon is always a winner. Far down the line from Adelaide (about 390km southeast, a grape's throw from the border of Victoria), the name is Aboriginal for "honeysuckle", yet reds from the region are more known for flavours of plum and blackcurrant. The Coonawarra vineyard region is sparse, running along a thin 2km-wide ridge elevating it above surrounding swamp. World-renowned, this 15km stretch of red soil is so unique, it's worth looking it up on google maps and switching to satellite view to see how it is farmed. See that stri ... Read Full Article

Pinot noir (French pronunciation: [pinoˈnwaʁ]) is a red wine grape variety of the species Vitis vinifera. The name may also refer to wines created predominantly from Pinot noir grapes. The name is derived from the French words for "pine" and "black" alluding to the varietals' tightly clustered dark purple pine cone-shaped bunches of fruit. Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine. Despite this, Pinot ... Read Full Article

Pork is one of my favourite meats to eat – so versatile and great at anytime of the day too! This dish calls on my times travelling around Asia and having crazy good crispy skin pork, unbelievably flavourful dipping sauces and fresh & spicy salads.

Pinot noir grapes are grown around the world, mostly in the cooler regions, but the grape is chiefly associated with the Burgundy region of France. It is widely considered to produce some of the finest wines in the world, but is a difficult variety to cultivate and transform into wine.

Despite this, Pinot wines are among the most popular in the world. Joel Fleischman of Vanity Fair describes Pinot noir as "the most romantic of wines, with so voluptuous a perfume, so sweet

That's it, and notice the big spread of nothing around it? The Coonawarra is a very special place. Laying on an old ridge of limestone, the fields have superb drainage, allowing the vines to flourish without the dampness at night that can ruin a good crop. Very similar in climate to the Bordeaux region
