A beautifully balanced, medium to light bodied Pinot Noir with intense fruit and bright acidity always hits my sweet spot when it comes to pairing savory foods like Thanksgiving fare. One of our great new discoveries, the small production Handpicked wines from Australia, all demonstrate the best of the region selected, in this case the cool climate island of Tasmania. This one of those achingly pure and pretty wines with unusual depth and balance that displays a true sense of place or terrior. Ethereal and complex aromas of pretty red fruit, smoke and baking spices leads to intense yet light bodied spicy red cherry fruit, leaning toward the old world in style, with a wonderful depth and penetrating purity. The finish is long and elegant. If you like the lighter bodied Pinot Noirs of Burgundy, you owe it to yourself to try this wine. Worth every penny and more.
