Years ago, I recall there being much fierce debate about whether it was possible to find a good Aussie Pinot Noir for twenty bucks, or thereabouts. The general consensus was that, other than perhaps an occasional one-off or something massively discounted, there was no chance. How odd that so many years later, it is easier to do that. Strange world. Anyway, this is one. This Pinot is from the Pemberton region in Western Australia. It spent eight months maturing in French oak, 10% of which was new. The colour is a deep red with intermingling flickerings of purple and ochre. The nose immediately gives up notes of dry herbs and red cherries. It is a soft style, a hint sappy which adds to the gentle complexity, and there are touches of warm earth. Notes of beef stock and soy emerge on the palate, along with some strawberry hints. Mid-length with a reasonable grip, this has 2-3 years ahead but is thoroughly enjoyable now.
