Alkimi Upper Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2019

 

Expressive. So savoury. Quite an autumnal Pinot Noir.

Sourced from the Willowlake vineyard (does anyone in the Yarra Valley not source some fruit from this site?), it is a wine well worth curling up to on a chilly evening.

Sauteed mushrooms, cloves, twiggy things and leaf litter. Red cherry fruit wraps itself around the savoury goodness. Some warmth kicks in leading to baking spices on a long and persistent finish. Respectable and very enjoyable.

Drink to five years
