2011 De Bortoli Yarra Valley Windy Peak Pinot Noir

windy peak pinotThought it worth including ‘Yarra Valley’ within the name now that it’s in a larger typeface than the variety. A bold move and one I deeply respect.

Red fruits, sour cherries mingle with moss, dried herbs and florals. It’s spicy, nimble and light to medium bodied. Enough structure and plenty of interest at the price point. Tastes not only like Pinot but specifically like Yarra Valley Pinot. Great effort from a year that posed challenges. 89 Good
