Rochford Pinot Noir 2005
Winemaker David Creed fashioned a gorgeous pinot noir here. A light intensity garnet in colour, the wine's aroma is pronounced, with cherries, garrigue, stems and graphite melding together harmoniously. The palate has long length, with medium acidity and memorable cherry and clove flavours, seasoned with some pepper. A fine wine for only $30. 94 points (extremely good)
