2013 Rhys Swan Terrace Pinot Noir

October 2020: Silky and red fruited with round tannins. Drinking well now.

June 2016: The Swan Terrace has had a loyal following from day one, as its purity and elegance reminds us why we fell in love with Pinot in the first place. The Swan has an innate ability to show both restrained and concentrated at relatively low alcohol, and while tempting when young, it truly rewards cellaring. For us, the Swan Terrace is a true distillation of an ideal site uncluttered by winemaking. The 2013 shows the hallmark rose petal and red fruit overtones with a core of chalky minerality and supple tannins. Hold.
