Bream Creek Pinot Noir, Tasmania 2012 AUD $37.50
This multiple gold medal winner is a bargain at the price. Deep colour with purple tints; dark cherry, smoky charcuterie aromas, and a big, bold, lush fruit palate. Well structured, concentrated and powerful. Its maturity is a bonus. (Screw cap; 13.6 per cent alcohol.)
