Best's Pinot Meunier Young Vine 2004

Meunier, tu dors
Ton moulin, ton moulin va trop vite

Best's pinot meunier is unique, in that, as well as unexpectedly bringing me to song, not many Australian producers I know of (I know of none in fact) produce a single varietal pinot meunier as a still table wine.  If you are wondering, it is rather pinot noir like - a cherry like aroma, with supple length and a candied cherry note on the palate.  Don't expect fireworks, but it's something different, and I liked drinking it.  85 points.
