Penfolds Cellar Reserve Pinot Noir 14%, 750ml
The Penfolds Cellar Reserve Pinot Noir style continues to evolve and the 2013 vintage marks the seventeenth commercial release. In 2013 Penfolds winemakers have crafted an expression of Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir that is hand-picked, cold-soaked (25% whole-bunch), naturally fermented, utilises no pressings and is neither fined nor filtered.
- COLOR : Vibrant crimson, unfiltered
- NOSE : Instantly Pinot Noir yet not simplistically so - an amalgam of many vineyards and many clones. Exotic musk and talc are followed by earthy dark cherry, capers, dill and Papaya. Youthful, yet awoken.
- PALATE : Fleshy and fresh, replete with natural mouth-watering acidity, adding lift and liveliness. A sweet mid-palate of pink fruits is buffed by lees and tell-tale creaminess.
