Ocean Eight

Aylward Pinot Noir (2010)

Aylward Pinot Noir – Wine & Spirits – 92 Points

After the Aylward family sold their Kooyong vineyard and winery in 2004, they set up Ocean Eight. Mike Aylward makes the wines from vineyards his family planted in the cool hills of Upper Shoreham. This is a salty, oceanic pinot, layered with notes of kirsch and kelp over crimson tannins. It starts off delicate, with a gentle texture, then the tannins seem to develop muscle and power with air. Decant it for tea-smoked duck.
