Top Peninsula pinot

Polperro Mill Hill Pinot Noir 2016, Mornington Peninsula, AUD $70

Sam Coverdale is making some of the peninsula’s best pinot at Polperro. With a medium red/purple colour, this single-vineyard wine has a bouquet loaded with dark cherry, liqueur cherry aromas of charm and complexity. It’s at the fuller bodied end of the pinot spectrum, deliciously succulent and extraverted. (Diam)
