2012 Crittenden Estate The Zumma Mornington Peninsula Australia Pinot Noir

13.7% alc.. This a small family owned winery. Gary Crittenden was one of the first to plant grapevines in the region in 1982. The Zumma name was adopted by the family’s 27-acre farm (now vineyard) when purchased in 1981. This limited bottling is sourced from the estate’s oldest vineyard plantings. Wild yeast fermentation, bottled unfined and unfiltered. · This is clearly a special wine from the moment the cork is pulled. Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. The aromatics are engaging and persistent featuring aromas of cherry, spice and a subtle hint of oak. The delicious mid weight core of cherry, cranberry and raspberry fruits make an impression on the mid palate and deliver a long and generous finish. Soft in the mouth with integrated tannins, the wine holds up nicely over time in the glass. A very giving wine that aims to please. Still enticing later in the day from a previously opened and re-closed bottle. Score: 93-94. Reviewed September 14, 2014 ARTICLE »
