Austins Pinot Noir 2007

From an unknown estate (at least to me) with a rather confident website, comes this quite good wine.  An earthy aroma with notes of crushed rocks and dark fruit remiscent of certain Central Otago pinot noirs. A similar palate, with better than average length.  Interesting.  84 to 85 points.
