Pearler of a pinot

Quealy Seventeen Rows Pinot Noir 2014, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $55

With a bouquet of dark cherry, spices and dried herbs, this is a medium-bodied, well-structured pinot. It’s very intense and rich, with satisfying dark cherry and spice pinot flavours, allied to terrific structure and a long finish. It has a touch of gravitas: an impressive pinot. (Screwcap)
