The picky Pinot Noir grape is trying to make some headway in the land down under. This one is light cranberry/cherry color with a gentle bouquet of grape and strawberry that reminds me more of a Gamay.
The palate is fresh though a bit alcoholic with light flavors. After a half hour of air it is a fairly tasty wine though still out of balance with too much alcohol. The finish is actually nice and fruity. For the $8 I paid it is a drinkable wine and not offensive but as I so fond of writing, with so many other quality wines at value prices available why just settle. Raise a glass if this is on hand but don’t go searching for it.
