Marchand & Burch 2018 Mount Barrow Pinot Noir

Pascal Marchand, the Canadian-born Burgundian winemaker, formerly of De La Vougeraire, and Jeff Burch, vigneron and owner of Burch Family Wines (Howard Park), are the co-founders of Marchand & Burch. They combine their global experience to craft tiny quantities of very fine wines from both France and Australia. This is a new release from the Mount Barker region of Western Australia - and it is a stunner. There are classic cherry and red berry fruits alongside earthy/deli characters and forest-floor notes. It is soft, textured, complex and very, very good value for $60.
