Fragrant and ethereal
Dexter Pinot Noir 2015, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $55
To put it simply, I adore this wine. I love its clarity and the fact that it is in a gorgeous primary state with lots of room to grow. That said, it is drinking beautifully now, and I have to restrain myself not to drink all of the bottles that I bought. I look forward to seeing it evolve and change over the next few years – if it lasts that long! Fragrant and ethereal red fruits and excellent pinosity. Elegant and refined.
