Was expecting more freshness and balance from Yarra Valley. I got overripe fruit. Mehhh.

Didn't love it, dark berry fruits, belies its 16 label with some colour age. Once the sulphur blew off it opened up a little more.

Innocent Bystander. Not easy to find affordable Yarra Valley PN, but this is a safe bet

Packed full of vibrant red fruits with medium acidity and fine tannins. One dimensional. Good enough but I'm looking for more...

Red and black cherry fruit leaps from the glass on the first whiff and first taste; a high quality pinot with enough spice and oak.

Solid Pinot for the price point. Sour cherry and slightly bitter red fruit. Not life changing or super memorable, but enjoyable and a better wine than many other Pinots at this price
