Overview & Tasting Notes
Light in colour, the Vat 6 Pinot Noir has a strawberry lift on the nose with stalk character from the whole bunch ferment adding complexity. The palate is delicate with bright berry fruit characters being the forerunner to the fine tannin structure. It is a wine that will age well in the medium term.
Awards & Accolades
2009 Vat 6 Hunter Pinot Noir has won a total of 1 awards.
4 1/2 Glasses - Their Pokolbin grapes are definitely not cool-climate, but Tyrrell’s Vat 6s have a long and distinguished track record. This 2009 is ruby red, has rose petal and leaf litter scents and brings juicy raspberry flavour to the front palate. Spearmint, cherry and gentle spicy oak combine on the middle palate and pepperminty tannins come in at the finish.
Ruby to red in colour with brick tinges. Deep, rich fruit on the nose with some spicy, savoury, gamey and dried herb characters. Rich, ripe and generous palate with assertive acid. Good length and structure.
90 Points & Highly Recommended - Estate-grown on three blocks; hand-picked and open-fermented with one-third whole bunches; 10% matured in new French barriques, the remainder in one-year-old barriques ex Vat 47; the red cherry fruit is light, the whole bunch and oak inputs correspondingly strong/ The 500-case production sells out every year.
91 Points - Light red colour, brick-red edge. Shy nose: lacks aromas. Some red fruits. Fairly developed. Light and soft in the mouth, with some powdery tannins adding structure, but forward-developed and showing some secondary earthy/leathery complexities. Deep and powerful, but gentle, with good intensity, good balance and very appealing drinkability. A touch of mystery to it…which I like.
91 Points - …The palate is medium-light and soft, with developed flavour arid powdery tannins. Deep and surprisingly powerful with savoury, leathery complexities. A good alternative to cool-climate pinots.
