Ballasalla Central Otago Pinot Noir (2017)

The 2017 vintage (4.5*) of this single-vineyard Bendigo red offers fine value. Barrel-aged for 10 months, it is bright ruby, with a fragrant, savoury bouquet. Mouthfilling, it is sweet-fruited, with rich cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing very good complexity and harmony, and a smooth finish. (From Folding Hill.)
