Eldridge Estate Pinot Noir, Mornington Peninsula 2012 $50

A blend of six clones, this has a deep colour and typical smoky, char-oak characters typical of this maker’s young pinots. Rich but elegant flavour, with a delicious spectrum of intense flavours. Precision ripeness, tight focus, and firm but not dominant tannins lending structure. Excellent pinot. Best 2015 to 2025. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 94/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: barbecued, spice-crusted chicken
