“Typical bold, generous style of Clemens Hill” – James Halliday
Clemens Hill Pinot Noir Reserve is a generous, full flavoured and rich Pinot. Subdued, chocolate, rich nose. Oaky and slightly blockish. Rich, soft, round, cuddly palate. Chocolatey and quite tannic. Cherry and chocolate give this vintage a real charm with excellent cellaring potential.
The 2010 was an award winner with excellent scores from James Halliday and Huon Hooke. Sourced only from our “B” Block at Clemens Hill vineyard, that are the oldest vines on the property, with four years of bottle ageing prior to release.
“Typical bold, generous style of Clemens Hill; a multi-layered, supple palate with highly expressive varietal fruit in a black and red cherry spectrum. Score: 94 Points” (James Halliday, 2010 vintage)
“Dusty, earthy, mineral, edgy. Ironstone and leather. Big, full-bodied, rich and gutsy. A powerful, full-throttle pinot. Big, dense wine. Lots of fruit on the palate. Just lacks a little charm and pinosity, but a very good savoury, not-so-fruity style. Score: 95 Points. Rank: #3 of Pinot Noir in Tasmania, 2010” (Huon Hooke, 2010 vintage)
“Lovely varietal purity and fruit sweetness and a touch of spice good acidity silky full-bodied tannins make for a delicious wine. Score: 88 Points” (Rob Geddes, 2010 vintage)
