Port Phillip Estate Red Hill Pinot Noir 2017

We seem to have missed the 2016 release, which surprises me, but it’s good to be back on the Port Phillip Estate horse.

This is pinot noir for purists. It’s nicely ripened, carring enough flesh and fruit, but all the while it’s built on structure, spice, acid, tannin, scaffolding, you get the drift. It’s a frame on which various flavour garments and highlights are draped. It feels sure, it smells perfumed, it drifts long, it’s light in a positive way. If I saw this, I wouldn’t hesitate.
