2016 Rapide Pinot Noir, Pike & Joyce, Adelaide Hills, Australia
Pike & Joyce's Rapide Pinot Noir from their Adelaide Hills site aims to deliver bright, fresh fruit and early drinkability.
Attractive fresh strawberry and dark cherry fruits with just a hint of oak. Also displays a little damp earth and some “foresty” notes derived from the whole bunch fermentation components that were included in the mix. Although typically elegant, the palate has nice depth of the bright fruits mentioned above, soft tannins and balanced acidity.
