Buy of the Week AU

Medhurst Steel’s Hill Pinot Noir 2015, Yarra Valley, AUD $25

The colour is deepish red/purple with a bright glow; the aroma is lifted, showing an array of fragrant herbs including mint. A delicious, light to medium-bodied, aromatic style. The juicy fruit flavour is far from simplistic. It’s not highly structured but seems destined for relatively early drinking. A beautiful, pure-fruited pinot. (Screwcap)
