Balgownie Black Label Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2015
Discovered in the back of the tasting pile. Always smartly priced Pinot this, and no different in 2015.
A light wine, but not in the underpowered way. Just mid-weight and vibrant, the style a luncheon Pinot, if that makes sense. Lots of bright raspberry fruit, a dash of herbs at the edges too. Easy to pick this as Yarra Pinot from first go, and still building in the bottle, if a little simple.
Best drinking: 2017-2022. 17.5/20, 91/100. 13.5%, $25. Would I buy it? Sure would. Enjoyable style.
