Tarrahill La Batard 2016

Yarra Valley blend of pinot noir (80%) and shiraz.

Unlike many of these blends, which essentially taste like beefier versions of pinot noir, you’d be doing well to pick this as 80% pinot noir. There’s some tang and sweet-spice notes, florals too, but it essentially tastes like a savoury-styled dry red, the texture silken, the tannin fine-grained, the length assured. This isn’t a bad thing because the other truth here is that this is a lovely wine, everything carefully placed, an impression of intricacy. Those sweet spice notes. That rush of fresh mid-weight flavour. It’s good now. It will mature well too.
