Gembrook Hill Yarra Valley Pinot Noir

One of the hidden Gems of the upper reaches of the Yarra Valley, this is a pinot noir of deceptive longevity and understated beauty. Gentle red cherry fruits, rose petal, forest floor, dried herbs and hints of anise waft through a delicate bouquet. The palate runs on a line of vibrant, natural acidity, drawn out by subtle oak and finely poised tannins. Allure triumphs over impact. $49 at Cloudwine, $50 at Dan’s.
