(2022) John Forrest's Pinot Noir has 9.5% alcohol and an elegant, pale to medium density and colour, with pleasant aromas of cherry and some tobacco-like spices. There's a little floral edge too, so authentically Pinot for sure. In the mouth there's a sour cherry and lemon savouriness to this, perhaps just lacking a little in fruit roundness or ripe generosity. It is certainly dry and gastronomic, though I feel a little more flesh on its bones would be to its benefit.
