Chatto Huon Valley Pinot Noir 2016


"Lovely wine" Gary Walsh
97 Points James Halliday
"Time will bring yet greater charm."  Campbell Mattinson

The bouquet is still locked up, the palate anything but: intensely and immediately expressive, dark cherry/berry fruits held in an embrace of fine but persistent tannins and an airbrush of French oak. Its balance and length guarantee a long future, with spices bursting through.97 Points; to 2030.   James Halliday

Jim Chatto and his home vineyard down in the Deep South of Tasmania are killing it right now.  The wines being grown on this vineyard are remarkable. A long and storied history looks likely; we’re getting in on the ground floor. This adds a chalkiness to the foresty fruit, the warm spice, the florals here peppered with scrunched dry leaves. It matches presence to persistence; it places every step as firmly as it does carefully. Time will bring yet greater charm.  Rated : 94 Points. Alcohol : 13.5%.  Price : $50.  Gary Walsh, The Winefront.
