Hillinger 2015 Pinot Noir
We've been waiting for the new vintage of Hillinger for months, and it's finally in stock. Austria may not be the first place you think of when you go looking for Pinot Noir, but it might be after you try this one. 2015 was an outstanding vintage for much of Europe, and judging by this, it was exceptional for Austrian reds. This wine is pure seduction thanks to its tender-fruity bouquet, spicy freshness and sultry smoke. Explosive fruit and bold acidity on entry with a smooth core of blueberry, cherry and strawberry fruit, very juicy and fresh with a pop of fresh spice towards the finish that plays well against the tart cranberry and herbal pine and eucalyptus notes and finishes with cinnamon and nutmeg spice.
