Huon Hooke – Riposte 'The Dagger' Pinot Noir 2018

Score: 91/100

Medium to full red/purple colour, with a sweet cherry and strawberry aroma, fruit-driven and straightforward. The palate is soft and fruit-sweet, charming and deliciously fruity. The tannins are light and soft, the wine very easygoing. A really lovely early-drinking wine, with good pinosity and early drinking properties as well as enough structure and intensity to take some age well. This is great value for money. 

Drink: 2019–2028
