Tibooburra Pinot Noir 2016, Yarra Valley, AUD $35

This is a fragrant, medium-bodied pinot to drink young. The colour is light and tinged with purple, the bouquet showing meaty charcuterie aromas. It turns fruit-sweet and succulent in the mouth, with light, soft tannins on the finish. Very good value. (Screwcap)
