Collalto Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2018
The first rule when drinking pinot noir from the Adelaide Hills is pretty simple: do not expect lush, voluptuous pinot.
Here, we are talking about structure (on the firmer sider) and weight (lighter to medium) and the open embrace of nature – herbs, acacia, briar, pepper and more.
Collalto 2018 pinot noir offers up a taste of said nature, of wild strawberries, dried herbs, tomato leaf, rhubarb.
It’s there on the aroma and on the sinewy palate in a gentle leafiness together with tilled earth, cherry and plum.
Tannins are on the leaner style, adding to the overall linear pinot approach.
