Happy Pinot Noir Day!

As some of you astute Pinot lovers may be aware – August 18 is International Pinot Noir Day!

To help celebrate – and get us into the mood – I found a few bottles that I have collected on happy Perfect Day Tours.

Now which one should we open?

 

From from left to right the Pinot Noirs are as follows.

1. Oakridge Wines – Henk’s Vineyard 2016 – Yarra Valley.

2. Passing Clouds 2018 – Kilmore. (Winery at Macedon Ranges).

3. Maddens Rise 2012 – Yarra Valley.

4. Curly Flat 2014 – Macedon Ranges.

5. Quealy ‘Seventeen Rows’ 2014 – Mornington Peninsula.

Both emanating from the Yarra Valley, I can vouch that these wines are delicious – and highly rated in the current James Halliday Wine Companion.
