Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia. 13.5%
A rich, lowish acid wine (presumably no acid addition, and probably better for the lack of this intervention), varietal but more than simple fruit. Made by a wine maker I respect, an innovator.
I’ve not yet been bitten by ‘the Burgundy Bug’ (thank goodness for my financial health). I like Burgundy, but I don’t obsess about it, and I’m usually underwhelmed by the top New World Pinots, like this one. It’s good, but I’m not excited, and it’s not cheap.
