Wine Tasting Notes (notes from Kirrihill website)
Kirrihill Moscato 2012
Tasting notes:The nose is lifted with aromas of melon, lychee, rose petals and hints of tropical fruit salad. Subtle Musk, Jasmine and white flowers linger in the background. Fresh and lively with the purity of the grape aromas expressed and contains no oak.
The palate is luscious, naturally bursting with fruit flavours. Musk lollies, rose petals and tropical lychees dominate the palate. A complex balance of tropical fruits, dance and change as the wine opens up. The natural sweetness of the wine is beautifully balanced with a fine acidity that brings the wine into line and provides focus and direction. A slight frizzante spritz helps provide texture and a little bit of fun to the wine.
Kirrihill Vineyard Selection Series Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Tasting notes: Pale straw yellow in colour, with powerful varietal aromas on the nose, featuring cut grass, lemon citrus and subtle tropical scents. There is an abundance of sweet fruit on the palate, dominated by pineapple, passion fruit and honeydew melon, but balanced nicely by herbaceous undertones. The concentrated mid palate richness leads to a dry finish of considerable length and persistence, with the fruit intensified by racy acidity.
Kirrihill Vineyard Selection Series Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2012
Tasting notes: A darker coloured Pinot Noir. Fragrant and perfumed. Leather and spice and a subtle tobacco leaf bouquet. Burnt cherry compote with hints of rust iron and autumn forest floor. Black fruits dominate the palate. Rich dense and textural this wine dances with subtlety and beauty. Fine savoury tannins and balanced acidity complete the wine that opens and changes with every new sip.
Kirrihill Vineyard Selection Series Clare Valley Tullymore Vineyard Shiraz 2012
Tasting notes: Lifted aromas of blackberry, cassis and olive tapenade dominate the nose. Subtle notes of black pepper and tobacco leaf linger in the background. The palate is rich and full with bright textural fruits. Blackberry and olive tapenade flavours carryover from the aroma and fill the palate with life. Subtle hints of oak, spicy pepper and cassis sit waiting subtly in the back ground making this a very complex and brooding wine. Soft, fine, tactile tannins line the palate providing texture, length and structure to the wine. A wine of amazing poise and energy. This wine will benefit from aging over the next 15 years.
