8 VINTAGES

UNDERWOOD PINOT NOIR 2015

Oregon

(Union Wine Co.)

TASTING NOTE: This Oregon pinot is a

blend of 60 per cent Willamette Valley and

40 per cent Umpqua fruit, in 10 per cent

new French oak. The generosity of the

Oregon 15 vintage has really smiled on this

wine, with a fresh lifted raspberry and

strawberry bouquet enticing. The light to

medium-weight colour belies the intensity of

the palate, which is elegant, with a melange

of crushed chilled red berries with some

darker cherry notes. The flavour is persist-

ent and fragrant in the aftertaste, with lovely

tannins to close. This might well be the

quaffing pinot of the year. Smashes just

about any Bourgogne rouge I’ve had as well

as most new-world pinot. Buy now, drink

now. (Frank Wilden,
