Toolangi Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2015

From the very good 2015 vintage in the Yarra Valley, the grapes for Toolangi's pinot noir are from Dixon's Creek, handpicked and 100% destemmed.  It's matured in a well judged 10% new oak, the remainder consisting of one, two and three year old barrels.  This is a subtle Toolangi, with aromas of cherry, autumn leaves and deli meats.  The palate adds some beetroot characters, and overall the impression is of a wine in delicate balance with good length.  (Alc: 14%, Region: Yarra Valley, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, Drink: now to 2022, Tasted: Mar, 2017, Source: Sample)
