Corofin Churton Vineyard Clod Block 2017
The 2017 vintage is sappy and structured, with layers that build seamlessly into a velvety richness, captivating and thought-provoking. Lighter and finer to taste, again different but in such a good way. Sturdy and tannic, the 2017 Churton Vineyard Clod Block Pinot Noir will need a couple of years’ cellaring to turn on the charm. For now, it shows some attractive rose and red-plum notes on the nose, but it shuts down on the medium to full-bodied palate, ending with dark fruit, crisp acids and drying tannins.
