Plantagenet Omrah Pinot Noir 2012 (Great Southern, WA)
13.5%, Screwcap, $18.99
Making Pinot Noir out of the Great Southern is tricky work. Actually, making Pinot Noir in the Great Southern isn’t the tricky bit – it’s getting it to taste good that is the hard part.
This Pinot presents a brave face for a cheapie. with plenty of bacon bits/cherry sweet red fruit on both nose and palate. The problem is that there is no delicacy, just gruff extract and drying tannins, the expression awkward and overly firm.
Not quite there.
