2022 Howard Park Flint Rock Pinot Noir
The name Flint Rock epitomizes the fine mineral structure and savoury elegance of wines grown in the wildly remote and beautiful Great Southern region of Western Australia. Our Howard Park Flint Rock Pinot Noir is only sourced from our cool climate vineyards in the Mount Barker and Porongurup subregions for retained elegance and bright varietal Pinot Noir notes.
Bright, translucent ruby in the glass, this juicy, red fruited Pinot Noir exhibits great elegance, poise, and balance. Freeze-dried strawberry, dark cherry, raspberry, sage, charred earth, and gravel form a tantalizing nose. The palate reveals subtle powdery tannin towards the front and mid palate giving way to a silky and slippery mouthfeel. Flavours of ripe red fruits and underlying minerality fill the mouth while a balanced acidity caresses the sides of the palate creating an overall lovely shape. The end result is a delicate and lifted Pinot Noir style that is immediately appealing with attractive savoury undercurrents.
Drink with crisp roast pork and a side of braised red cabbage with apple and walnut.
