Black cherry with mouth-watering acidity yet it doesn't taste tart. Great balance and mouth-filling joyousness. Perfect for roast turkey.
Gorgeous Gift Wine

|Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
The 2010 Yabby Lake Vineyard Pinot Noir, a blend of MV6 (80%) and Pommard, G5V15, and 115 clones making up the remainder - all sourced from the Mornington Peninsula; has captivating, intense aromas of almond, cigar box, black currant and raspberry. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine; balanced with good acidity, refined, dusty tannins and a long and smooth finish. This is a sipping wine; drink now to 2020+. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 93 pts – recommended for its quality. Tasted at Australia Today 2014 Trade show http://grapeselections.com/australian-wine/ in Feb/14.

A very solid show of expertise in Pinot Noir from Australia. Medium garnet with aromas of ripe raspberry, cherry, strawberry, earthiness, cloves and other baking spices. The taste is more cherry and raspberry with firm but silky tannins and medium-high acidity. Long cherry finish with the baking spices shining through. Pricey, but worth it. I paired this with roast chicken, gravy, and a Brussel sprout salad.
|A blend of clones MV6 (80%), the remainder Pommard, G5V15, and 115; 20% whole bunch; 15% to 20% new French oak puncheons. Strong, deep and clear colour, there is a mix of dark cherry, plum and spice in the core of the palate, fine tannins running throughout giving texture, structure and flavour; glorious drive and length. Drink now till 2018. Score – 96. Source: James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, July 17, 2012|
