Dalrymple Cottage Block Pinot Noir 2012, Australia
Pinot Noir isn’t known as the ‘heartbreak grape’ for nothing. It breaks even the best winemakers as they try to find a site with the soil, climate and consistency to make it work. But it’s found a home in Tasmania where wines like this emerge, suffused with cherry and raspberry and spice. This is best with duck or lamb, and don’t be afraid of giving it plenty of flavour to match its fruit either.
