Review of the 2019 Estate Pinot Noir
Here is a great review of the Squitchy Lane Estate Pinot Noir from Nicole Bilson at Wine Pilot.
“It’s not often Pinot Noir is released with a little age – the release date on this wine is March 2023. Harvested in February 2019, this little beauty slept through some pretty tumultuous years and has emerged bright and moreishly overdelivering on its price-point. There are aromas of black cherries, redcurrants and dried cranberries. The fruit is very ripe, a hint of jamminess, but in that scrumptious, slightly candied spectrum rather than feeling tired or hot. Time in the glass reveals rhubarb, cinnamon sticks and the sweet immersive scent of native forest after the rain. It’s bright and fresh on the palate with a silky texture, lovely length and spicy savoury fruit. Pair it with… honestly anything. It’s a yummy lighter bodied wine that ticks all the boxes. I drank it with a toasted cheese and onion relish sandwich and would definitely line up that combination again.”
