Savoury and complex

Stefano Lubiana Pinot Noir 2016, Tasmania, AUD $50

The colour is medium to deep red/purple and the bouquet opens with some Beaujolais-like aromas that morph into more complex, earthy, savouriness with a dark fruit background. It has palate depth and structure: a satisfying dry, savoury pinot that tastes as though it’s had lengthy barrel maturation. (Screwcap)
