Clarence House Reserve Pinot Noir 2018
Producer: Clarence House
Luscious dark cherry and plum fruits with hallmark Coal River Valley spice greet the nose on this superb 2018 Reserve Pinot from Clarence House. The palate is intense yet with a lovely finesse with hints of delicate savoury oak. Very much a keeper; enjoy this wine now or in another ten years plus.
The small Clarence House vineyard is located just north of Hobart on a perfectly positioned north-east facing slope. Over 8ha of the total 12ha of plantings consist of pinot noir and chardonnay, with the remainder including pinot blanc, sauvignon blanc, merlot and tempranillo. All wines are now made by Anna Pooley and Justin Bubb at the nearby Pooley cellar in Cambridge.
