It is amazing when you look at a glass of Apsley Gorge pinot: translucent, ethereal.
It is hard to imagine the power and concentration of the nose and the palate from such a delicate looking wine. The 2019 is no exception.
NOSE: Straight away there is the complexity. How can this come from grapes?
All of the elements are there, but they are difficult to isolate. Forest floor and that natural yeast funkiness. They all combine to give you this complex smell sensation, and then the fruit comes to the fore.
PALATE: A very rich textural entry. Beautiful fruit tannins, more a mouth feel than drying skin and seed tannins. All this punctuated by rich pinot fruit leading to a long persistent finish.
