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.

#wine so fine is #Pinot #sublime from #YarraYering. Folks accustomed to #bombastic #NewWorld versions that have more in common with #Grenache aka #Garnacha might be let down with this #earthy, lithe little number by the late, great #DrCarrodus whose wines were (are if you are lucky enough to have a few-I do!) never #jammy #blockbusters but rather, subtle #herbaceous and oh so #sexy efforts that age gracefully. At 11 years, this #YarraValley wine still has a goodly amount of #delicious life yet remaining, with a great nose of #briars, #brambles, dried #cherries and hints of #saddle. #palate is alive, with currents of energetic #acidity sparking the tongue with #flirty #kisses of #flavour and a #finish that is so much fun!

Bring it! Fabulous beast @peterkandw you absolutely killed it with1994 @YarraYering Pinot 19yrs young. Loving the animal. Patience required to comprehend just how much evolution & refinement occurs with Yarra Teri g wine over time. As a winemaker it does my head in! You try something, look at the wine over to five years, think you've got it sorted make changes in the vineyard & winery, then on it's 19th B'day it freaks you out tells you it's become a sophisticated adult & the zits have gone. It's no longer a gangle creature working out how to use it's arms & legs. It's moving gracefully, caressing & enchanting all who sit for a moment in it's company. #filthyoldvino #wine #pinotnoir #yarravalley #yarrayering #1994 20 years to complete an experiment is a long time!

P No. Full fruit forward and savoury wine. Good. Nothing wrong with it. But hardly recognisable as a Pinot noir.
