Carrick Excelsior Pinot Noir 2014
An intense nose showing floral aromatics, black cherries, plum and a touch of spice from the barrels providing a beautifully integrated wine. The front palate is layered with dark fruits, oriental spice and complex savoury flavours which support the fine grained tannins. The intensity of the front palate cascades into a lingering seamless finish. This is an intensely rich wine that will cellar until at least 2025.
The Wine Front – This is a barrel selection of estate pinot noir, the barrels most suited to extended time in oak. Bottled unfiltered after spending 16 months in those barrels. Sweet spice, sandalwood oak-like character, ripe pinot noir cherry-berry scents, mocha, wet earth and forest floor. Complex. The wine tastes powerful, ripe fruit character with heft, dusted with mocha and sweet spice, smothered in spicy, suede tannin, exiting with firmness and rich flavour. Full, bold pinot noir, done very well.
In a mixed or straight case: $113.04
