Coldstream Hills Pinot Noir 2002 (review)

88 points.

Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.

A serious but easy going Pinot. Quite a lot of ripe sweet fruit, some balancing savoury tones, and nice sappy acid. The flavour lasts, and it is easy to accurately recall the wine the following day.

I bought several bottles some time ago because I felt this was a fairly serious effort, a step above prior vintages with no increase in price. Note this is not the reserve version. About $20.

Drink now, and over the next couple of years.
