Marchand and Burch Mount Barrow Pinot Noir 2016, Mount Barker, AUD$60
An open and expressive nose, quite complex in its presentation. Prominent red fruits with subtle green herbs. A little bracken; a touch of earth. The palate is full and flavoursome and the tannins are extremely fine. It has beautiful mid-palate weight and considerable texture given its youth. Small quantities made – best get in quick.
