Tulloch Beechworth Pinot Noir 2010

Tulloch Beechworth Pinot Noir 2010

This Hunter Valley producer has sourced fruit from the Beechworth region at the foothills of the Victorian Alps. A nice nose; red cherries, strawberries, some nutty oak, a bit of nutmeg, nothing overpowering. Some delicacy on the palate: red cherries and a touch of rhubarb. Hold that thought; with time, it looks bigger, moving to drying red plums and spices, though with timid tannins. It’s okay as a lighter bodied red, but it doesn’t have a lot of pinosity. Nice acid, in passing. 14.0% abv. Sealed under screwcap. 84-85 points. Retails in the low $20s. Drink over the medium term.

    Do you mean semillon or hunter riesling? Or are the the same thing?
    Perhaps beechworth is picking the shiraz early and bottling as Pinot….
