Supple and complex

Brown Magpie Pinot Noir 2014, Geelong, AUD $35

This is a classy, gentle, medium-bodied wine that draws you in with its complexity and harmony. When first poured, it displays bright pimento aromas, but after a short time in the glass the succulent red fruit grows and expands. The acidity adds a refreshing tone to the palate though is not the slightest bit sour or dominating. The whole bunch fermentation element, 25%, has been perfectly-judged. A beautiful, satisfying and measured wine. (Screwcap)
