$50

From a blend of two Yarra Valley sites, Tibooburra and 1000 Candles, this is the last pinot noir to be released by Pat Sullivan that isn’t of Gippsland origin.
Pat’s winemaking genesis really came about as an all-rounder living and working on the 1000 Candles site, though his viticulture research experience, and working in vineyards, dates back well before that.

This is a supple, succulent pinot noir of good extension of flavour, squelchy forest berry fruits and hazy texture. It’s one of those savoury scented pinots showing pickled and stewed cherries, sweet smoke, alpine herbs and pepper. There’s plenty of charisma here. It’s one of those quite Mike Bennie - The Wine Front
