Glaetzer-Dixon Pinot Noir Nouveau 2013, TAS

Glaetzer-Dixon Pinot Noir Nouveau 2013 Tasmania Simple Palates Seriously

AUD$25. This was one of the earliest Pinot Noirs to hit the market, from Tasmania’s excellent 2013 vintage. . My first impression was that it appeared floppy despite the inherent lush fruit, very unlike the stellar Beaujolais Nouveau, more like the village 2€ sorts.. It’s now had a couple more months in the bottle and appears to have come some way since. The aromatics typical of carbonic maceration are still retained, notes of sweet florals, raspberry and cherry fruit, with generous dash of spice. A medium+ dark purple ruby colour, it’s a light bodied, spiritedly wine, moderately weighted with dark berry fruit flavours with hint of espresso grain on the finish. It’s a decent drink, but not one meant for ageing obviously. I disagree with the price tag, I think it’d be better sold as an under $20 wine in keeping with the ideals of early vintage, larger volumed Beaujolais Nouveau. Drink now. 87/100.
