Hillinger 2017 Pinot Noir
2017 was a perfect growing season for the Austrian reds, so the normal savory, smoky notes of the Hillinger, while still present, take a back seat to the delicious, luscious fruit that the weather gave this vintage. Lovely fruit notes of strawberry, pomegranate, and raspberry paired with the more sensual and savory accents of a fine French Burgundy (sandalwood, herb, vanilla). It’s elegant, nuanced, silky yet juicy and pleasure-bent. A remarkable achievement for Austrian Pinot and definitely worthy of gracing any Thanksgiving (or dinner anytime) table.
