2006 Bar­ring­wood Park Mill Block Pinot Noir The 2006 Bar­ring­wood Park Mill Block ($33, 95 points) has clear and pure cherry fruit, as be­fits its bril­liant clar­ity of colour. It has echoes of the ’ 03, firm and fresh, with par­tic­u­larly fine­grained tan­nins and none of the slightly green acid­ity that some of the ’ 06 Tas­ma­nian pinots seem to be show­ing early in their life. In the con­text of a ver­ti­cal tast­ing at the restau­rant, it is less op­u­lent than some of its pre­de­ces­sors but cer­tainly no less im­pres­sive. The cel­lar door, at 60 Gil­lams Rd, Lower Bar­ring­ton, is open daily, Jan­uary to Fe­bru­ary, from 10am to 5pm; for the rest of the year, Wed­nes­day to Sun­day and pub­lic hol­i­days. The wines are also avail­able by mail or­der; (03) 6492 3142; www.bar­ring­wood­park.com.au. James Halliday
