De Bortoli Yarra Valley Villages Pinot Noir 2012

De Bortoli have a knack of producing bargain priced Pinot Noir, and here we go again.

There's so much to like about this. It's soft and supple with dark cherries, hints of plum, a sliver of cured meat, and a little dash of spice to top it off. A savoury character lingers nicely on the finish too urging you to go back for more. And it's not hard to I can assure you. One of the descriptors on the label is, "calm". Yep, it is. Very calming indeed.

And if you think this is a smart drop, you better check out the Villages Chardonnay.

Have a look around as you can often find it below the RRP.

Excellent value for money. Very good wine.
