Pinot noir kicks above its weight in Barringwood’s blends, and pronounces its presence in a medium straw hue with a blush tint, and layers of spicy red cherries, violets, red apples and fruit mince spice. Chardonnay defines a tail of focused, cool, Tasmanian acidity. Time on lees has contributed nuances of wild honey, without interrupting its primary mood. Finely integrated, perfectly ripe Tasmanian acidity is well balanced with subtle dosage on the finish.
