2009 Wyndham Estate Bin 333 Pinot Noir South Eastern Australia 13% $10

This smells lovely. A jammy, sort of astringent red fruit/red currant note on the nose is layered over vanilla, some light pickappepper marinade tamarindness, some preserved lime and a nice spice note. A touch soft on entry with tannins that are lightly peppery and just a hint of austere, though that adds some nice mouthgrab here. The fruit is bright and zesty with cedary top notes to the core of burnished cherry fruit. This is very clean, clear and refreshing with good length. It’s fairly complex, but at the same time rather subtle. 88pts

    Thank you, Greg. I'm sure I can find some of these at the local purveyor.

  • Unlike other Chilean Pinots I tasted (some of them claiming much higher status like Reserva, Special Selection etc.) this one stands out to advantage: strict in character, crisp and balanced in taste, and strangely no that nasty heavy sulphitic bouquet the Chilean mass-market wines are so notorious for

    HA! You'll have to wait for $35-$50 International Pinots before I get around to them. Love the Hamilton Russel but have to admit to having never tasted the Bouchard Finlayson. I'll keep a watch out for it though. Thanks for the tip!
