About

Wine lovers the world over are constantly on the hunt for that elusive creature; affordable, delicious Pinot Noir.

It is the unicorn of the wine world.

Tim Shand’s latest offering in the Airlie Bank range is right on the money. This is picked a little earlier than the ‘Big Brother’ Punt Road Pinot Noir, harvested precisely when the fruit is showing red fruit and a crunchy, aromatic lift.

Remarkably, the 2016 release may be even better value than the much loved 2015. A little more whole bunch (25%) and a even a couple of new barrels in the mix. This is the quintessential ‘drink-me-guilt-free’ Pinot Noir. It doesn’t come around all that often, so jump on it while you can.

What It Tastes Like

Dunno how he does it but this is just fantastic drinking. Fresh red berries, gentle wisps of tannin, a savoury spine running through the core - it’s right on the money. Drinking pleasure high for the low asking price. No wonder these guys are making a name as one of the best value wineries in the Yarra. Great stuff.
