BK Wines Adelaide Hills Skin n' Bones Pinot Noir 2011
Q. What are the two things you take home with you when you leave a wine store - assuming you have just purchased a bottle of wine?
A. The wine of course, and the receipt. When its natural cork, the receipt is what stands between you and undrinkable wine.
Okidokey then. The BK Wines Adelaide Hills Skin n' Bones Pinot Noir 2011 - second bottle - was a pretty as a picture. Ruby red in the glass, the aroma was a mix of soft strawberries and tart cranberry and raspberry. The palate was brimming with more tart red fruit, little bit of spice, but tart red fruit; that's what the notes say anyway. And the 250 days? Dunno. Maybe on skins. A goodin' for the dollars.
Drink with spicey taco's
