Brokenwood, Pinot Noir - Indigo Vineyard 2019
The Indigo Vineyard in Beechworth has long been associated with Brokenwood.
I've found pinot noir from Beechworth to be a fickle beast - ripeness the key ingredient.
The colour is rich enough - bright ruby red - transparent at the edges.
The nose carries earth and compost; wild strawberries and rhubarb. So much spice; so hard to define.
The palate is bright and driven by perfectly ripe fruit - uncluttered by oak.
Nothing fickle at all, here. Dark cherries and wild strawberries - acidity in balance.
Kudos to the grape grower as much as the winemaker.
