Got this one gratis from a friend of mine. A 1989 Pinot from Victoria, freakin’ AUSTRAAAAALIA.
#now I’ve had some older pinots from those parts so I knew it wasn’t a joke and thankfully what I knew did indeed come true. It’s joyous, fascinating juice.
The rich, thick maroon color to it lays bare its time on this planet, and the nose itself alone provides a complexity that only age can allow. the palate is an evolutionary joy from rich bing cherries to a more established wink to those who know.
