Bimbadgen Regions Pinot Noir 2011

Bimbadgen recently showcased their wines which come from regions outside their Hunter Valley home. Run as #nottheusualBimbadgen on Twitter, the night was very successful.

This wine was a hit with participants. An attractive nose of earthy, dirtiness along with forest floor and moist mulch. Some would argue this is not attractive. I agree. It's sexy!

What seems like a basket full of soft berries, they slide through, smooth as silk. Those mulchy foresty flavours kick on. There is a little acid zip and the flavours linger long on the front palate.

Worth a look. The price is up there however. No doubt the transport costs to get the fruit from Tasmania to the Hunter Valley would contribute. I'd shout bargain had it been around the $30 mark - which it is for members as they receive a 20% discount.
