TK 2003 Adelaide Hills 2003 Reserve Pinot Noir


I was talking to the distributor earlier this week and he slipped it into the conversation that he still had some. I was really surprised. It was offered to us back in January at the same price as the standard TK Pinot Noir. "What's wrong with it?' I not surprisingly asked. Absolutely nothing, came the reply. Apparently they just need to discretely move some stock.
We ordered some, I took a bottle home and pulled the cork. It was an absolute cracker and a truly outstanding way to kick of 2008. We sold out and ordered more and sold out of that. We now have more.
This is a top class Pinot at an amazingly low price.

RRP: $40
Our Price: $20 per bottle

From James Kenneally:
Cherry brick red in colour. Bright lifted fruit with cherries and beetroot earthiness. A muscular Pinot Noir with firm yet fine tannins. The earthy beetroot really shines through as an attractive character on the palate.

This was tasted with an Adelaide Hills goat's cheese brie. A marvellous blend of flavours.

this is a class wine, but that is exactly what I would expect from a class maker such as TK. I bought some to age but it was too good leave.
