2014 Dalrymple Pinot Noir

I don’t know about you but I like it when it easy to pick a wine knowing that it is reliable, safe and will be good.  This is one of those types of wines.

I have to admit when I poured it I thought I must’ve picked up a younger version of this wine.  It was so bright, clear and fresh and the aromas that presented themselves deceived me into thinking this way.  Don’t get me wrong, I knew it was only two years old.

This is going to sound weird but, apart from the dark berries, and other berry things going on, there was a flavour that was like bitter cherries but a sweetness too.  This was the flavour that intrigued me no end because it added such a different dimension to the wine, but a good one.

We drank this with Greek food (including lamb of course) and in the company of great friends and it went down a treat.

  1. Tony, you can’t beat, good company, good food and good wine … and this pinot was a beauty! It was most enjoyable and left us longing for more. We’ve pencilled it in high on our wines of interest list. Thank you for the tasting treat, it was a delightful evening made all the more memorable for this Dalrymple. Opened first it may have been, but first impressions are more often than not, lasting impressions, and in this case they were.
