2012 Chain of Ponds 'Morning Star' Pinot Noir

Chain of Ponds are said to be the first to plant extensive vineyards in the Northern region of the Adelaide Hills, for cool climate viticulture. The best barrels from the better vineyards are generally selected for the top tier 'Morning Star' Pinot, with the remainder going into their 'Section 400' Pinot.

An earthy nose with raspberry, cherry and beetroot, are followed by some sour cherry and raspberry notes on the somewhat short palate. Tannins are a touch chalky and drying to my taste. Mellowed out a bit on day two, so probably best to give this one a good decant.
