Glaetzer-Dixon 'Rêveur' Pinot Noir
Buy this and hide it. If you have no patience or no wine in the house, you’re going to need a decanter or a jug. A jug is just a decanter with low aspirations.
If you open and pour this Reveur right now, you might find this somewhat discombobulating with big, new oak and very ripe fruits all falling over each other. However, I chucked it between a jug and a glass for a bit to let some air get through the wine and the difference was remarkable.
The wine settled down to show off the delicacy that was being swamped previously. The silky balance of unfiltered and unfined funk, crisp acidity, ripe strawberries, mulberries, raspberries, light but complex, savoury yet fruity and earthy yet fresh.
Sourced from four vineyards in the Coal Valley, 19 months in French oak, this isn’t for the low and slow-cooked meats, this is for the seared pieces of lean protein with roasted veg, whole bulbs of roasted garlic, truffled mashed potatoes. I find this wine deeply intriguing and I am keen to see how it develops over the next few years. 93 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
