Whisson Lake Piccadily Valley White Label Pinot Noir 2011

Surprise package from this vintage.

Strawberry, white pepper, dusty exotic spices, subtle mineral/earthiness and a whiff of vanilla perfume. It’s light and shows some wet/cool vintage spiciness, yet the fruit is pure and there’s fine graphite tannin lending it an almost silky feel. Clean acidity and a long squishy red fruited and spice finish – and again the mineral feel – which is sort of hard to describe using other words. An articulate wine of finesse and gentle charm, and lovely to drink with it. Strange thing to say, but it feels like a wine that does not want to be scored. Anyway, somewhere around 93 or 94, to put a number on it.
