Wine of the Week AU

Tokar Estate Pinot Noir 2015, Yarra Valley, AUD $40

An outstanding value buy from the stellar 2015 Yarra vintage. Dark cherry aromas backed by toasty oak; a deep, bright red/purple colour, and a generous medium to full-bodied palate. Succulent fruit is balanced by fine, savoury tannins. A top wine that will also age well. (Screwcap)
