Yes, 2004 Pinot Noir is still well and truly alive. A recent visitor to the cellar door was pleasantly surprised to find that it was. But so are so many other Tasmanian Pinot Noir wines, albeit that the some colour is found in macro molecules at the bottom of the bottle! The wine is a blend of fruit, half from Providence and the other half from Frogmore Creek in the Coal River Valley, hence the “CRV”, which has nothing to do with Honda motor cars!
A great, light, drink now Pinot, showing lovely integrated fruit characters, mostly cherry. The acid is still apparent (that’s why its still alive!) and the finish is velvet smooth. Caution: once opened the wine should be consumed within the next few hours and not left until the next day.
