Red and black fruits, floral, spice, and whole bunch tang (herbs, smoke). Touched by oak for sure, but almost invisible. Snappy tannins and an impressive finish. Definitely a wine to look out for.

Few things to note:

- This was the better whole bunch Pinot on the table. Could be the extra year or perhaps more oak in the vinification - the wine looks more complete that Nicolas'.
- V16 was a warm year and I think this worked to the advantage of Cobaw Ridge's vineyard. It's typically cooler than Bindi's, which didn't exactly nail the vintage imo. I have found some of Cobaw Ridge's wines too green in the past (especially their popular Lagrein), but this was spot on.
- Picture taken from Wine and Country, which is an awesome shop in Daylesford btw!
