The Wine Society label wines continue to produce consistently good QPR (quality price ratio) wines across the board. We are currently trying some of the Society label Pinot Noirs‘ and so far they are really good at every price point.
This latest of their Tasmanian venture is a real beauty. While at around $20.00, not a so called budget wine, the quality at the price is outstanding.
The nose has dark cherries, raspberries and some funky appealing savoury like earthy notes. The palate has a fine and almost crisp mouthfeel with the lovely fruit and pleasant and effective tannins. The finish is long and satsfying. This wine would cellar easily for another 2 or 3 years, but in most cellars it wont get that far.
This can compete with many Pinots‘ at twice its price so I recommend you Sydneysiders try it and see. We had it with baked atlantic salmon fillets on a bed of rocket with gnocchi and kalamata olives, a marriage I would recommend.
