2019 Lone Star Creek Pinot Noir
Dom is one of those winemakers that cut his teeth at huge, famed wineries, applied all the knowledge to his own principles, and emerged with something powerful and unique. This Pinot Noir is a modern Australian cool-climate style of Pinot that is impossible not to like. Literally. It's beautifully perfumed with spice and violets. Flavours of dark fruits and graphite are so harmonically integrated, sewn tightly into each other like Egyptian cotton. Graceful, textural and stony with fine tannin. This wine will continue to develop over the next decade if stored in a cool dark place – but, oh boy, it's drinking well now. A fantastic example of Pinot from a fantastic young winemaker.
