2013 Vinomofo 'Duck Sauce' Pinot Noir



Retailers Vinomofo have collaborated with winemaker Steve Webber from DeBortoli, in the Yarra Valley, to produce an excellent value pinot worthy of a careful considerate tasting, but cheap and easy drinking enough to slurp back with your mates, while watching the footy.

I found this to be quite light, although it did start to open up and deliver some more fruit after a little while in the decanter. An overall delicate nose featuring aromas of strawberry and raspberry, alongside some forest floor and herbaceous notes. Somewhat thin, but precise palate with soft red berry flavors and silky tannins, balanced by excellent acidity.

I'll be buying some more of this, as I've not come across many pinots of this quality for under $20. It's only available directly from Vinomofo in six packs, however it can be purchased as part of a mixed six pack, alongside some of their other collaboration wines. A very good go to pinot to keep around the house for every day drinking.
