Wine of the Week AU

Eddystone Point Pinot Noir 2016, Tasmania, AUD $32

This won a gold medal and the international judge’s trophy for best export wine at the 2018 Tasmanian Wine Show. It’s amazing value for money. Deep colour, sweet dark cherry aromas with hints of vanilla; the palate soft and pillowy, rounded and fleshy. The second wine from Bay of Fires winery. (Screwcap)
