Bannockburn Geelong Pinot Noir 2015


This is a very good pinot noir from Bannockburn in Geelong.  In the glass, it has a stemmy aroma (there's 40% whole bunch in use), with twigs, meat and rhubarb undertones.  The palate is between medium and full bodied, with a viscous texture, long length, fresh acidity and some appealing bacon and cherry fruit flavours.  Ready to drink now, this should nonetheless improve with a few years in the cellar.  Rating: Very Good. Abv: 13.5%. Price: $50+.
