A great value Pinot Noir

 

De Bortoli Yarra Valley Pinot Noir (Estate Grown)

This is a great value Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley in Victoria.

The Yarra Valley is famous for it’s consistency as a cool climate growing region and it’s definitely one of the best regions in Australia for this elegant and sometimes fickle variety.

A winery with a great reputation

DeBortoli is famous for it’s early adoption of sustainability initiatives in the vineyard which translates to quality grapes and therefore quality wine.

De Bortoli has been rated as a 5 Red Star Winery by James Halliday which indicates that it’s wines are of consistently high quality and solid value for money.

A delicious wine

This wine has garnered solid ratings from the top wine writers in Australia consistently over the past few vinatges.

I can vouch for it having tasted it myself  – it is in fine form – still fresh and vibrant while being 2 years old now and has really settled into the bottle and has come together nicely. It tastes even better than the aroma lets on – a very silky smooth mouthfeel with an array of flavours and great length.

A tricky variety to choose

Pinot is notoriously fickle – it can be hard to find a consistently great example in this price range. For under $22 you’d be hard-pressed to find a better value wine with the consistency and name that this wine brings. A solid choice.
