Buy of the Week AU

Yabby Lake Red Claw Pinot Noir 2017, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $30

This is extreme value for money. The colour is medium to full red with a purple tinge and it smells of sweet cherry, perfumed with hints of Campari and bitter herbs, probably reflecting some whole-bunch fermentation. It has remarkable depth of flavour for the price, with a sweet-fruit core and layered flavours. (Screwcap)
