2016 SMALL IS­LAND BLACK LA­BEL PINOT NOIR

Halliday - Supplement - - Pinot Noir & Nebbiolo Red Hot & Rated -

RRP $45 / 2025

Made us­ing grapes from both the Gala (east) and Glen Garry (north) Vine­yards. 180 dozen pro­duced. Per­fumed and pretty on the one hand, stewy and a lit­tle grumpy on the other. It rushes up to greet you but then holds you in a moody stare. Cran­berry, for­est berries, flo­rals, sweet dry spices. It has all the ba­sics cov­ered, but it then adds some flare. You’d bet on this de­vel­op­ing well. CM 13.5% alc. This wine is aimed to be a great ex­am­ple of Tas­ma­nian pinot. We used the power and mid-palate from Glen Garry to com­ple­ment the per­fume of the Gala fruit. As we heard from a fan of this wine: “Nine months ago we en­joyed a bot­tle of your pinot and, well, it’s a boy!”
