Palliser Estate Pinot Noir The Great Ted 2014

The eighth release in the ‘Great Dogs’ series. ‘Ted Hobbs’ was a pure-bred Beagle that belonged to the late Jock Hobbs and family.This premium Pinot commemorates some of the finest, furriest, four-legged friends Palliser has had. 

The nose is finely presented with fragrant red berry fruit entwined with aromas of dark red florals and nutty oak nuances, and a subtle thread of dark herbs at the core.  This unfolds ethereal floral and raspberry liqueur notes that build in intensity and penetration. 

The palate is medium-full bodied, concentrated with tightly bound flavours of sweet, rich, black cherry fruit melded with lifted oak and subtle nuances of dark herbs, whole cluster savoury element and floral detail.  The fruit is carried by very fine-grained, powdery tannin extraction and ripe acidity. This has very positive linearity and the wine carries a sweet and succulent finish of spices, liquorice and black florals.
