Artemis The Crux Pinot Noir 2017 – as quaffers go this wine is punching above its weight in terms of quality. Still relatively young vines, so still in development so to speak, I tasted this wine a couple of years ago and was not impressed…but I tasted this years release and the difference is big enough to drive a bus through.
I am recommending it to anyone who loves Pinot Noir and will listen. The nose is all black cherries and blackberries, the palate is super dense with black cherries, red and even sour cherries finished out with some blueberry and plum. Acids provide a delicate structure all the way through, and the tannins are hidden. This wine well and truly over delivers.
