2012 PINOT NOIR $ 18

Clutha, Cen­tral Otago, NZ

13.5 per cent A soft and fruity, smoothly tex­tured drop show­ing fresh cherry and plum aro­mas and flavours with a touch more fleshy weight than the oth­ers here and good savoury spici­ness on the fin­ish. 2010 PINOT NOIR $ 22

Yarra Val­ley, Vic

13.0 per cent Light and pleas­antly per­sis­tent with plummy fruit in the mouth, a silky smooth tex­ture and a soft, sub­tle fin­ish. Again a sum­mer­drink­ing pinot with enough fruit- driven flavour and fresh­ness to be good as a back­yard bar­be­cue primer or with some­thing like al­fresco an­tipasti.

Rowella, Ta­mar Val­ley

13.0 per cent This is another of those won­der­fully juicy, mid­weight, bright cherry and softly tan­nic styles of pinot that Tas­ma­nia can do so well and that ex­em­pli­fies the va­ri­ety’s great ver­sa­til­ity, es­pe­cially with food. Per­fect drink­ing with just about any­thing light and spring/ sum­mer fresh or any time.
