I can’t pronounce it either, 2012, Adelaide Hills, Pinot Noir.

Ngeringa

Ngeringa, Pinot Noir, Adelaide Hills, Australia, 2012

I went to Adelaide once.  It was a bit dull.  What is not dull is Ngeringa’s 2012 Pinot Noir. Ngeringa sits on the far eastern side of the Adelaide hills region, nestled in a non-official sub-region called Mount Barker.

Robe: Lots of color by pinot noir standards: bright red blush.  Airs of blood in water.

Nez: Fantastic, powerful nose.  Deep, wet, lascivious scents of earthy, mossy, vegetable notes.

Bouche: Velvety and so-damn-long.  Bold flavors leap out of the glass.  Great structure, the wine is perfectly balanced and even achieves a slight chewiness.

Impressions of Adelaide redefined.  A magnificent wine 93/94.  You can pick it up at Mig’s wines here in Brussels.
