Trial Bay Estate 2022 Pinot Noir


The 2020 and 2021 pinots from Trial Bay Estate were very decent wines, but the new 2022 release takes things to a different level. This is a very impressive young wine from a boutique vineyard in the d'Entrecasteaux Channel, 30 minutes south of Hobart that is vinified by consultant winemaker Kate Hill. Owners Nick and Saskia Kayes, who purchased the property in 2019,  have worked hard on their vines and are reaping the rewards. with bright dark cherry flavours here and impressive structure. It's a real pinot, not a soft, dry red. Only 660 bottles were made, and I may just have purchased a couple of them. $55.
