Tasted Aug. 28th, 2018. Colour pale ruby. Legs medium. Aromoas and flavours of, cherry, dried strawberry, mushroom, spice. Taste dry, fruity red fruit, tannins are soft and chalky dry, medium minus body, low to medium alcohol, mouthwatering plus, finishes dried red fruit, medium long mouthwatering finish. I matched this wine with rare cooked duck breast and it was a good match because the red fruit complemented the flavour of the duck. This is a good value Pinot Noir due to the $20 price. I reccomend that you try this wine.
De Bortoli Wines - Yarra Valley Gulf Station Pinot Noir 2015, Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia: The grapes for this wine come from the Brookland Vineyard in Australia's Yarra Valley and provide great balance of fruit ripeness and some zingy acidity. A gorgeous, silky pinot noir with layers of fleshy black cherries and a satin-rich texture. This balanced red wine shows attractive intensity in the glass. This Australian red wine is made from Pinot Noir grapes and has great vibrancy and verve. Gulf Station is the original pastoral holding of the Bell family who settled in the Yarra Valley in 1864. The site of today's De Bortoli vineyard was known as "the summer paddock". It had a large dam and held green pasture for the summer months. The Pinot grapes for this wine grow on mature vines in the Dixon Creek, Yarra Glen Tarrawarra and Woori Yallock vineyards. Each vineyard is picked and vinified separately. The wines are matured in new and used oak barrels for 10 months. Finishes with great vibrancy and refreshment. Try this vibrant Australian wine with game meats, duck and roast turkey. Excellent value. Highly recommended. Drink: 2016-2023. 15511 13% XD 750 mL $19.95 Score: 93/100. October 15, 2016 Best Value Red Wine. Luscious Lamb Wine Full Review
