Top Aussie Red

Spring Vale Pinot Noir, Tasmania 2010 $40

This has a lovely perfume of fresh, vibrant red-cherry, raspberry and strawberry aromas, with a twist of mint. The palate is medium weight with dominant earthy, humus, foresty notes and a thread of tannin providing structure. It’s rich and deep in the mouth, with lingering pinot complexities, the flavour blossoming on the back-palate. Now to 2022. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 95/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: roast partridge

Stockists: Dan Murphy’s; Vintage Cellars
