Ross Hill 2019 Harry Pinot Noir
Pinot noir and affordable do not often share the same sentence. Pinot noir is a pernickety grape, difficult to make well, and the best examples are invariably expensive. Here, however, is an exception to the rule; a delicious cool-climate pinot noir from a family winery at Orange in western New South Wales that delivers plenty of quality bang for your buck. For a start this tastes like pinot noir, not a generic soft dry red, with classic red berry and undergrowth notes and subtle older French oak. It retails for around $30 - a bargain. Harry, by the way, is one of the grandchildren of winery founders Peter and Terri Robinson. When he's old enough he'll love drinking this. $30. www.rosshillwines.com.au.
