Ocean Eight-Estate-Pinot Noir-2010-750mL

Medium light brick red in colour with a cloudiness that is no doubt a result of the decision to bottle without filtration in order to retain as much flavour as possible. Bright fresh red fruits dominate the nose with raspberries and cherries being the most obvious. Underlying the fruit are some spicy notes with nutmeg and cloves being evident. In addition there are some mineral components and the overall impression is that this is a fresh, savoury wine. The palate is quite rich but still retains freshness. Whilst still very young the wine is just starting to show the silky texture good Pinot Noir is famous for. This will continue to develop with bottle age. The acid is lively at the lingering finish and there is also plenty of tannin. Try this wine with spicy Asian plates as the freshness and crisp finish will handle plenty of chilli heat. The wine is not too heavy for the richer fish like tuna and salmon and all in all is quite versatile in pairing with food.

Wine Companion
2011 Young Gun of Wine Award winner Mike Aylward is inspired by Burgundy, and unashamedly has no formal training in winemaking; he has been able to make a tightly wound focused and pure red-fruited and spicy pinot, with plenty of stuffing and backbone, and scintillating acidity, successfully combining power with elegance.
