Hoopenburg Pinot Noir 2006

2006 Hoopenburg Pinot Noir 76 Points

Bright, vivid cherry red, sweet boiled beetroot, touch of earthy character and hints of wild mushroom, alcohol slightly disturbing and burning (14.5 alc/vol).

Palate texture shows green cherry tartness, lacking fleshy fruit and elegance of good Pinot, definitely over acidified, uncomplex, acid dominate and sulphur burn.
