De Bortoli Villages Pinot Noir 2015

Another "Villages" pinot noir from the Yarra Valley, this time from De Bortoli.  This is a young and fresh expression of pinot, with its freshness reminding of Beaujolais (which I like).  Its aromatics are high toned with juby cherry and blueberry notes, with maybe even a touch of VA.  Its palate is simple and flavoursome, but grows some structure in the glass.  Good drinking for the price.
