Tamar Ridge Kayena Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009

85 points

Tasmania, Australia. 13%

Very well made, finely judged wine. Dark fruits, restrained sweetness, nice balance. The flavour sweetness balance puts it into the very top league of Australian Pinot.

I’d give it higher points if it had greater concentration, but this is an early drinking wine. For light, or no food. A very good advertisement for Tamar Ridge’s more expensive bottlings.
