Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "A pretty, lifted nose, firmly in the red fruit spectrum (think cranberries, red cherries and pommegranite). Light, delicate and aromatic - the 2016 Pinot Noir is all about crunchy red fruits and a creamy, layered texture. The tannins are lacy and delicate. Some more refined, savory dried herb characters emerge with air. 40% whole bunch, wild ferment, aged in 600L French oak Puncheons (20% new) 240 cases total production."

    One of the most fascinating Pinot Noirs of the year for me. It took Sam and I several years to finally get these wines here! But it was seriously worth the wait. Stargazer is a tiny passion project of winemaker Samantha Connew. With a storied history of making wine across Australia, Oregon, Italy, Spain - Sam brings a wealth of knowledge to the table and her vinous prowess is known to all that have met her. She is also the Chair of Judges at the Royal Sydney Wine Show...on of the most prestigious wine awards in the country. This minuscule production Pinot Noir of just 240 cases is wonderfully aromatic and pure. It's light, transparent color in the glass belies it's concentration of flavor but hints at the wines ethereal elegance on the palate. The nose is filled with rose petals, crunchy red berries, saffron, dusty, dry spice and singed agar wood. The palate is light, fresh, taught and full of drive and precision...but it's not super lean or tart, the mid-palate has a nice softness but with minimal extraction. On the finish again acidity and cool fruit take precedence over tannin but there is nothing aggressive about the acidity, the wine is so fresh and vibrant but soft and silky at the same time. Beautifully crafted Pinot Noir.
