Lerida Estate Cullerin Pinot Noir 2019, Canberra District, AUD $38

Lerida Estate is on a tiny but special piece of land that runs between the Federal Highway and the Cullerin Range of hills.

The colour is medium-deep ruby to tile-red; the bouquet shows some mellowness from development, some pot-pourri notes, a trace of leather, with flowery high-notes soaring above. The palate is full and rich, deep and well-structured with abundant but balanced tannins supplying structure. Long finish. A serious pinot noir, especially at the price. (Screwcap)
