These special wines form a true national treasure of our industry.
Best’s Wines Great Western Pinot Noir 2019
Under Justin Purser's guidance, pinot noir constantly excels and morphs beautifully. This crackles with pleasure and the 50% whole bunches in the fermentation add sapidity as much as stemmy, albeit ripe, flavours. Cherries and pips, star anise and menthol, a palate that's light and bright with supple tannins and tangy citrussy acidity. Absurdly priced as in a bargain.
