So what did everyone crack into for International Pinot Noir Day?
It hails from the Robe region in South Australia and is run by David and Peg Woods. The name comes from a heritage building in the heart of the Robe which was built in 1858 called Karatta House. It is this house that David & Peg renovated to turn into their winery.
This ‘Gold Miner’s Trek’ is from their K range of wines and is an ode to the many Chinese who disembarked at Robe (because they could avoid the £10 landing levy there) for the gold mining rush in 1857. They trekked past the present day site of their 12 Mile Vineyard on their 400km journey.
Karatta love their Burgundy grape varietals and I have yo say this Pinot went down super well for #PinotNoirDay. Here are our notes:
It’s a garnet shade in the glass. The aromas simply jump out of the glass. Think red cherries, red liquorice and sweet spice with a bit of earthy savouriness to it. In the mouth it’s wonderfully fruit forward yet incredible smooth. Candied cherries tempt the taste buds alongside subtle tannins right at the back. Y-U-M!
This wine was sent to me direct from Good Pair Days as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!
