Corryton Burge Cornelian Bay Tasmania Pinot Noir 2019


Tasmania and the Derwent River might seem a world away from the Burge family home in the Barossa but there is a personal connection, with Trent and Amelia’s mother Helen growing up in the island state. And the wine is a stylish example of Derwent Valley Pinot. It shows fragrant and generous fruit aromas – dark cherry, dried strawberry and cranberry providing a pretty start. The wine then takes on a more serious persona on the palate with brooding, savoury earthy and spicy fruits with good energy supported by silky tannins and drying acidity for a lingering finish. You get the impression this wine would show its best with gamey dishes such as barbecued quail.
