Stefano Lubiana 2008 Estate Pinot Noir
Attention to detail is a hallmark of Tasmanian vigneron Stefano Lubiana’s wines and this is stunning, almost Burgundian, with a high-wire act balance between silky mouthfeel, earthiness, fine tannins and sweet fruit. Lubiana's wines from his vineyard at Granton in the Derwent Valley, north of Hobart, just get better and better. This would be superb with duck dishes or roast turkey. Lubiana recommends cellaring for 5-8 years but for me it's too bloody delicious right now. $48.
