The Hilt 2021 Estate Pinot Noir
Exuberant and unforgettable bouquet with green, black and red notes. Clove, hibiscus, rose and black cherry. Peppercorns and black plum. Difficult to capture all of these remarkable elements in words. Changes like a kaleidoscope with every new minute in the glass. Red grapefruit, cigar box, black tea and violets. Earth-driven and then raspberry-like on the palate. Salty and savory with a welcome charge of acid. Everything remains cohesive and energized. Builds slowly and steadily to a peak of fresh and delectable black fruit alongside cascades of bright acidity. The finest and most gentle sprinkling of dusty tannins that act to support the fruit on the long and winding finish. Persistent, sophisticated and sublime.
The 2021 Pinot Noir Estate has a beautiful perfume of candied cherries, fresh cut flowers, savory herbs, and subtle marine nuances. It's medium-bodied, has rocking purity, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's a beautiful appellation release with serious character.
