Sassy Pinot Noir 2010

Sassy's pinot noir, from the Orange district, resembles the classic Australian fruit forward version of pinot noir.  Almost opaque in colour, it opens to vibrant cherries and strawberries on the nose.  The palate has medium acid, light tannins and fruit driven cherry, strawberry and rhubarb flavours.   Perfectly pleasant drinking, and ready to drink now over the next couple of years.  Acceptable
