Yeringberg Pinot Noir 2015 is beautiful and pure right from the start.
It's both pretty and powerful, delicate and muscular, and most definitely a serious wine.
The aroma is laden with notes of raspberry, cherry & spice, all layered with earthy, sappy, charcuterie complexity, and wrapped up in an intense and neatly savoury package.
Old vines produce a palate that opens with depth and power, developing with air to display considerable elegance and refinement.
There's a supple, red-fruit quality to the mid-palate, plenty of spice and sappy complexity, and fine but powerful structure that promises a great future.
With more time, the ripeness and richness of the fruit builds, as does the spice and rose-laden perfume on the long, enticing palate.
In need of either a decant or 5-6 years in a cellar, this is lovely, serious Pinot.
