Henschke Giles Pinot Noir 750mL
Ruby with bright crimson hues. Perfumed, spicy red and black cherry aromas with notes of rosehip, violets, fennel, rhubarb and strawberry. The richly flavoured palate reveals pure and complex spiced cherry, cranberry and raspberry fruit giving mid-plate definition, complemented by lifted, bright acidity, textural silky tannins and excellent length.
Critics Rating: ANGUS HUGHSON WINEPILOT.COM 2019 Vintage "This example is a beautifully shy, enticing and perfumed pinot that is immediately complex with spicy, earthy, cranberry fruits plus a hint of star anise. In the mouth it shows restrained fleshy red fruits, plus meat and spice, all well balanced with moderate acidity that provides generous weight before finishing long with silky tannins. It is a superb Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir to enjoy over the medium term with gamey dishes, such as barbecued quail or Cantonese roast duck." 95 Points
