Bay of Fires Pinot Noir 2019
The 2019 Bay of Fires Pinot Noir exemplifies this development showing richness and elegance that is so desirable from cool climate Tasmania. For this vintage we saw the majority of fruit coming from the East Coast across 3 regional vineyards, but also from the Tamar Valley for the first time in several vintages. This wine will yield amazing results from the cellar, but typically sells out in a short timeframe.
The perfume of this wine is very complex. Sweet ripe strawberry fruit feature with Chinese spice from MV6 clone vineyards and whole bunch influence - star anise, cinnamon plum blossom. Although elegant and supple, the wine shows remarkable power, intensity and length on the palate. Framed by ripe, moderate tannin the graceful sweet strawberry fruit is complemented but not dominated by spice.
