Kate Hill 2020 Huon Valley Pinot Noir

I may be biased about this wine because I have done several shifts at Kate Hill's cellar door during the pandemic, but this shines as a superb example of cool-climate pinot noir from one of the southernmost - and coolest - parts of Tasmania. It has proven a hit with tasters since being released a few weeks ago and has delightful varietal character along with with a smooth, elegant finish. The balance between raspberry fruit notes, French oak and savoury/undergrowth flavours and textures is impressive. Made in small batches and I suspect this will sell out rapidly given the cellar door response. $60. www.katehillwines.com.au.
