Pinelli Estate Wines

Pinelli Estate Wines

When it comes to value for money, there are few better places than this little producer. The vineyard is mostly part of the original Waldeck holding, subdivided some years ago, although a new vineyard on the Swan River flood plain has added another dimension. In some years the quality is exceptional, as evidenced by a number of show successes in Perth.

Pinelli Breanna rosé 2016 ($16)

Such a beautifully fruity little rosé. Yes, there is a little sweetness there but it’s so well balanced with the fine talcy acid that it finishes with a dry clean freshness. Red berry with a little Turkish delight, red cherry and raspberry make for interesting, appealing drinking.

SCORE 89/100 CELLAR 2 years

Pinelli Late Harvest 2016 ($16/375ml)

Fragrant and highly floral late picked style. Has a slightly muscatty character with a clean though quite sweet palate. The acid holds it from becoming cloying and the finish is really attractive. Ideal with fresh fruit or even some hard cheeses.
