2012 Yabby Lake 'Single Vineyard' Pinot Noir

Coming from one of Australia's best viticultural and winemaking teams, Keith Harris and Tom Carson, this is a good example of just how good Victorian Pinot Noir has gotten. An excellent Aussie Pinot, I'm now super keen to get a taste of some of the single block Pinots from this vintage.

Plum and red cherry aromas with some forest floor and mushrooms. Great length on the palate, offering more purple red fruit alongside some more savory flavors. Everything I want from a Mornington Pinot Noir.

I think I may have plucked this one from the wine fridge a touch early, as I suspect it still has lots of development potential.
