Hungerford Hill Tumbarumba Pinot Noir 2013 (Tumbarumba, NSW)
14.8%, Screwcap, $36
Tumbarumba – great place for Chardonnay and bubbles, still yet to hit its red wine straps. The accusation is often that the Pinot was planted for sparkling base, and is the wrong clone for table wine. Yet wines like this show there is some promise if the viti is right.
Smart Pinot, just inches away from ‘really good’.
Tasted: August 2014
Score: 17/20, 90/100
Would I buy it? A glass or two.
