Wine of the Week AU

Stonier Pinot Noir 2016, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $28-$30

This is an excellent pinot at any price, and quite remarkable for $30. The bouquet is spicy, meaty and charcuterie-like, adding layers of interest to the primary fruits. Soft, delicious, sweetly ripe pinot flavour, very varietal and loaded with charm. (Screwcap)
