Neck of the Woods Bendigo Pinot Noir 2021


Sometimes you can't see the wood for the trees. Not in this case as this again, even with a new vintage will delight, surprise and reward. 

"Aromas of plum, dark cherry, red licorice and rosemary on the nose with the addition of raspberry and cassis on the palate. This sexy, understated wine exudes elegance with persistent bright red fruit, fine tannins and enduring freshness. The athletic frame speaks of its “classic” Bendigo origins, yet it’s supple and graceful side show a character less often found in the sub-region. It’s class in a glass!" Winery

"The best example of Neck of the Woods Pinot Noir so far…. complex and enticing bouquet, taut and youthful on the palate, rugged and fruity with scents of raspberry - baked and fresh, plum and black cherry. Subtle savoury layers weave within the fruit core on the palate, taut and dry unfolding slowly and evenly on the palate and over the next two days tasting, this example showcases its complexity and potential. Great core attributes, textured and lengthy, well made, polished and complex. Best drinking from late 2024 through 2030+." 95/100 Cameron Douglas
