Wine Entry : Swan Bay Geelong Pinot Noir 2004 (Australia)

-

Purchased this wine from my club at S$41, and is also the one that we opened during W&J’s wedding (see post below). The wine was a pale light garnet red in colour, typical of a Pinot Noir. Simple elegant design of the bottle with a screwcap makes it easy to re-cap and drink over a few days.


Smell : Light raspberry with a little oakyness

Taste : Light refreshing taste with a background of sarsaparilla flavour. Mild tannins.

After-Taste : Short oaky finish with a bitter end.

Description at back of bottle :
This fruit was selected from vineyards in the cool climate, maritime region of Geelong. It displays typical fresh, ripe red fruit and violet characters and is best enjoyed with lighter red meats, pasta and fish. This wine will benefit from careful cellaring for up to three years.
