94 Points - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front "Douglas. The black stream. And, now I research a bit more (it is my cousin’s first name, passed through our part-Scottish heritage), Douglas was once a girl name too. There ya go.
Smoky notes, dried green herbs, black berries on brambles, game meat notes. Great start. Savoury sense. Fleshy texture, sweet-ripe but fresh fruit flavours, supple through its long flow then tightens on a web of surprising, grippy-graphite tannins. Serious pinot noir here. Tightly wound. Intense. Long-lived."
Zalto Denk-Art Burgundy Glass
Zalto Burgundy glass is recommended for all Pinot Noirs, designed almost specifically for Pinot’s delicate aromas. The aromas of Pinot Noir are often the most delicate, but when revealed can be the most enticing and pretty. The Zalto Burgundy glass is the widest of all the Zalto glasses providing the largest surface area of wine. This allows for rapid aeration, revealing all of Pinot Noir’s delicate spice, herb, floral, earth and berry aromas to be maximized. The narrower rim holding these aromas for an unparalleled experience of Pinot Noir’s elegant subtleties. Zalto Burgundy is also very good for Nebbiolo, especially Barolo.
Despite being the second smallest state in Australia, Victoria is home to over 600 wineries, more than any other wine-producing state. However, Victoria does not produce the most wine, as rather than producing mass quantities of cheaper wine, its wineries tend to be smaller and more boutique in style. The cool climate here produced by the coastal areas means that a wide range of wines can be made, from stunningly complex Chardonnay’s and delicate Pinot Noirs in the Yarra Yarra Valley, to savoury and rich Shiraz from Heathcote and iconic fortified wines from Rutherglen.
Our favourite producers from the Victoria region include By Farr and from the Heathcote area, Wild Duck Creek.
