This gem of a wine is the top-selling pinot noir at Pinot Shop by a very wide margin. It deserves to be because quite frankly it is a rippingly good pinot at a sensational price. The balance between plummy and fleshy fruit (with hints of coffee) and the slightly savoury notes on the palate is perfect in every sense. Terrific as it is now, cellaring for 2 – 3 years more will repay with extra smoothness.
It keeps popping up in blind tastings and it looks sensational every time. 2005 Bream Creek Reserve Pinot Noir $39
