Fetherston 2015 Pinot Noir

A massively impressive debut from a new Yarra Valley label with this excellent pinot noir released alongside a very good chardonnay. Only 1000 bottles were produced of this juicy, tangy little number with red berry fruit from Steels Creek allied to restrained oak, forest floor elements and hints of Asian spices. Whole bunch fermentation and older oak give excellent balance and structure, too. This offers immediate drinking pleasure wth the promise of medium-term cellaring and makes Fetherston a label to look out for in the future. A very tidy 93/100. $28.
