Alpine Hillside Pinot Noir, Rhys Vineyards


The 2021 Pinot Noir Alpine Hillside is one of the most complete wines I have tasted from Rhys. The 2021 Hillside takes all the signatures of this site and amplifies them in stunning style. A whole range of floral, savory and earthy notes open first, before a blast of fruit and tannin saturates the palate. This deep, potent Pinot won`t be ready to drink soon, but it is hugely promising. Whereas most of the Pinots in this range softened with air, the exact opposite happened here! Readers should be in no rush.
