Kooyong Mornington Pinot Noir 2010 Wine Tasting Review

I haven’t had that many aged pinots.

We tend to drink them young (with the exception of an 05 Martinborough last year).

But this is a special occasion, a “date night” in the city of Adelaide, and Mr Wino is choosing the wine as we relax in the new Champagne Lounge upstairs at the wine bar institution, The Apothecary. 


We giggle at the queues of youngsters outside a nightclub over the road. 

We opt for a bottle, albeit a 375ml half bottle to ensure we are responsible for the drive home to McLaren Vale.

Bright, clear, lemon yellow.

Sniff Sniff

Phoophey.
Undergrowth in a temperate rainforest.

Mr Wino loves it. In a chesterfield, tucked into Hindley Institution the Apothecary, he waxes lyrical about macerated strawberries, dried spice, white pepper.

Sip Sip

On the palate sour cherry, plenty of acid and a little powdery tannin
