Wine of the Week AU

Mayer Granite Pinot Noir 2017, Yarra Valley, AUD $55-$58

The colour is pale red with a good tinge of purple, and the wine is light-bodied and very fragrant, with strawberry, raspberry and spice notes and mineral and floral touches. Delicate, light-bodied yet intense in the mouth, it’s a very complex wine of true beauty and finesse. (Diam)
