Castle Rock Estate A&W Pinot Noir 2022


A wine of structure and poise. This is a serious Pinot Noir demonstrating the power and finesse that you get in great Pinots. A&W has been a project for over 20 years with the vines now between 8 and 37 years of age. There is a slightly sappy stewed plum and sour cherry character that expresses the complexity of this variety. The palate is firm and held with a tight fine tannin and beautifully applied oak, which is a mix of new and seasoned French, of which 24% was new. Super impressive.
