2005 Mornington Estate
Pinot Noir is currently in fashion however good, affordable examples are few and far between. A producer that consistently delivers quality and value is Mornington Estate from Victoria. Their 2005 Pinot has an inviting fragrance and appealing complexity with dark cherry, mulberry and subtle fennel characters. It has very good palate weight and the tannins are fine and balanced. Well suited to both casual and formal dining.
Available from fine wine stores.
