Single Ferment Pinot Noir 2017: Rated Excellent

Bendigo Estate Single Ferment Pinot Noir 2017

"Smoke, wild herbs, perfumed florals, dark cherry; a dark & brooding element, coffee & chocolate with time. Powerfully mouthfilling and rich, raspberry and dark berries, graphite and generous oak notes the sweet fruit finding an ally in wild herbs and some licorice on the long, brooding close. Structured, fresh, the intent and quality obvious, yet the ‘Estate’ version is my fave."
