Ripe as a brown banana.
Interesting side of The Hills.

Delectable Blue

A delicate, soft, almost subdued Pinot. Lacking the strongly perfumed floral nose or the well defined fruity palate so common of the variety in Australia. It is almost refreshing in its naivety - almost. The wine has a strong earthy background with some smokey game highlights and a very rounded mouthfeel.

There is something about it that feels and tastes very old fashioned, although I can’t quite put my finger on what. I think it may be some of the aged characteristics that are present in the wine, despite its young age, combined with a very low acidity. It tastes more like a 10 yr old Pinot than a one year old, although it does lack some of the depth and complexity of its aged brethren.

I enjoyed the wine, but my wife was not impressed with it.
