Menthol and mint on the nose of this full-bodied, smooth Australian red wine made from the classic Pinot Noir grape in the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills region. On the palate sour cherry and cranberry. Pair with roast chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: rack of lamb, rib eye steak, pork crown roast.

Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A new world, Australian Pinot Noir from Adelaide Hills. Pale garnet colour with a bright berry filled bouquet strawberries, blackberries and wet green leaves. Perfect for spring, with elements of rich earth and burgeoning floral blossoms layered with soft vanilla and touches of light smoke. Flavours reveal bing cherry, graphite, smoke, stoney minerals, rust and a hint of blood. High acidity, medium minus body, tannins and finish. Nicely balanced. A sound pairing for grilled portobellos and venison steak. 90 points - tasted March 2018
Woodside Park 2016 is a very pale ruby Pinot Noir from the cool-climate Adelaide Hills wine region in South Australia. There is a good concentration of raspberries and cherries mixed in with some eucalyptus on the nose and why wouldn't there be considering from where the grapes were sourced. Pair with Kangaroo burgers on the grill. - Community Wine Reviews
