2011 Hanging Rock Jim Jim Macedon Ranges Pinot Noir
Rating: 94 $45 Drink by: 2016
John Ellis take a bow. Bright, clear crimson-purple; this is an extremely attractive pinot noir, with pure varietal fruit driving both bouquet and palate; the supple, silky palate has an array of red fruits and good oak. There is the faintest touch of green, perhaps ex stalks (I'm not sure), which I have deliberately overlooked in giving the wine 94 points, not 93.
