2018 NIKKAL YARRA VALLEY PINOT NOIR

$25.00 $25.00

Pinot Noir is remarkable in its ability to communicate the terroir of a region in a highly-transparent way. In Australia’s Yarra Valley, Pinot Noirs often evoke powerful aromatics, forward fruit, savory undertones, and intriguing earthy characteristics. The climate is cooler than Bordeaux and perfectly suited for Pinot and Chardonnay, which make up 60% of their output. We found a great one, and at $25, Nikkal’s 93 point Pinot is brightly focused with vivid cherry fruit and wonderfully balanced acidity.

Winemaker Kate Goodman honed her skills over the last three decades while making wine across Australia and participating in vintages in Spain, France, and the US. She creates her Nikkal Pinot from three well-established vineyards in the Yarra Valley to make a wine that captures the overall region’s essence.

Each vineyard adds unique elements to the wine, with the overall theme being bright and fleshy fruit. Kate ages the wine in barrel for just six months to preserve the wine’s succulent fruit and natural energy.

Description

2018 NIKKAL YARRA VALLEY PINOT NOIR

“Gentle reduction here with fine, fresh red cherries and a sappy, gently herbal edge. The palate has a beautifully fine feel with such precision and freshness on offer. Drink now. Screw cap.”
93 Points
“Cherries, raspberries, rhubarb and a touch of spice all find a place to create a vibrant, full and generous wine with a velvety and fleshy texture. Bursting with flavor, this is a supple wine with youthful juiciness. A blend of pinot noir grapes from four vineyard sites which truly captures the essence of the Yarra Valley. Each vineyard brings a different element to the wine, with the overall theme being bright fleshy fruit.”
