Ocean Eight – 3/09/2013

Pinot Gris 2012
Really tight quincy freshness. Very focused and sharp, dry dry.

Verve Chardonnay 2011
Very sulphury smoky struck match, sharp thin lacking power intensity character. Not so much a fan of this style, it appears under-ripe. At least it’s not overworked.

Pinot Noir 2012
Really bright pure lean aromatics. Right up my alley, lovely and long focused delicate fine but firm tannins. Exactly what Mornington Pinot should be.

Aylward Pinot Noir 2010
Kind of different notes on the nose, oak muting the fruit. Quite warm, brusque youthful tannins and heat.
