Hatherleigh Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 NSW
95 Points, James Halliday 2020 Wine Companion, “Hatherleigh Pinot Noir 2015 . Some development of the mid garnet hue. A flicker and cherries and pips, wood char and spice as it heads into more savoury territory. Medium bodied yet decisive. Grippy Tannins, somewhat terse, but some sweet fruit coming through. It ends up refreshing and convincing.
