Youthful red

Medhurst Estate YRB Pinot Noir Shiraz 2016, Yarra Valley, AUD $35

A 50:50 pinot noir shiraz blend, made in a soft, early drinking style that is taking off in this region. Youthful purple/red colour leads into an intense aroma revealing cool-grown pepper, spice and a little mint. Medium-bodied, full of flavour, with fruit sweetness and a light kick of tannin. Lovely now and will age well. (Screwcap)
