Pinot Noir - 2016 Beechworth Vic
Another cracking wine made just for us by viticulturist and winemaker extraordinaire Mark Walpole (see our Beechworth Chardonnay and King Valley Tempranillo).
Grown in one of Beechworth's high altitude vineyards, from the moment we first tasted this wine early this year we knew we were onto a winner.
The nose is bright, full of dark fruit and subtle floral notes. On the palate the rich fruit is complemented by finely balanced tannin and acid, giving great structure to the wine, yet it remains wonderfully delicate. This is what great Pinot Noir is all about!
If this wine doesn't convince you that Beechworth is one of Australia's most exciting wine regions, we don't know what will.
