Wine Of The Week AU
Port Phillip Estate Balnarring Pinot Noir 2013, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $40
This is a pinot of individuality and character. Aromas of smoked charcuterie, sappy, foresty nuances and emerging sweet cherry and spices. It’s big and bold at first taste, then wins you over with subtle charm. The taste is soft, fruit-sweet and succulent. Delicious! (Screwcap)
