    April 4, 2020 - Nose: Rose, menthol, violets. Somewhat subdued, but quite nice.
    Palette: Very rich.
    Menthol, cherry with sour pip, black fruit, creamy cinnamon finish.
    Still greenish tannin finish which detracts from the wine. I was hoping that had gone by now.
    Still quite hot due to the alcohol level which also detracts from the wine.
    Good, but not great.

    July 4, 2017 - This is a rare wine of very good quality.
    A cool vintage from the Clay Creek block owned by Fred Osmond.
    30 year old vines sourced from Coonawarra.
    The nose.
    Earth/fruit/oak and some kind of perfume I can't recognise , maybe talc or roses (err that would have to be Pope John Paul the second) because roses in general aren't highly perfumed ,but this one is.
    On the tongue a nice balance of fruit and oak a little tannin a nice lingering finish, no discernible alcohol crushing the flavours.
    I usually don't like Pinot Noirs from the Hunter or from SA .
    But this one has a bit of depth and character and I reckon it has at least another two years in it even though I think it is drinking at it's peak.

    SILVER MEDAL: 2012 Pirramimma White Label Osmond Dry Grown Pinot Noir

    February 2020

    Well, it's a year past my drink latest and it's holding up well
    A little yeast on the nose and then a mix of alcohol and something else.

    .Still okay, the fruit is still there and a little acid and tannin.
