Jack Rabbit pinot noir 2011 (Bellarine Peninsula, Geelong, Victoria)

Jack Rabbit

In the glass the wine displays an light garnet colour with purple tints. A young pinot with striking freshness and intense fruitiness: aromatic and matching flavours of macerated strawberries, raspberry or even citrus. There is a touch of earth on nose but overall the fruit is super dominant.
 
The wine is focused, possibly a little single dimensioned but very skilfully made.  The palate is chiselled with sharp acid and a sour fruit finish that works well with richer dishes. Sappy tannins and slightly toasty, spicy oak is evident but not dominate on the finish.  The Jack Rabbit label states that the wine is a miraculous 12% alcohol. Clearly the grapes were picked quite early given the fruit profile but this is still a very low alcohol for the region even if the season was not subjected to the extremes of other vintages. A nice wine to enjoy with a plate of homemade tortellini, wild mushrooms in a creamy sauce.
