Rising Pinot Noir 2021
Bright ruby-red. On the nose, there’s pomegranate, raspberry, a hint of redskin lolly and a warming sweet cardamon and star anise-like spice. The palate gives way to the sinewy savouriness of Rising’s Bad Earth: Wet rock, blue stones, some semi-cured meats; which sit alongside a touch of old-school super fragrant strawberries and that sweet-sour pomegranate thang with lacy tannins gently weaving right the way through. The acid holds it all together, but folds subtly into the background. Svelte with all the right soft bits.
