When Erik said he had picked up a parcel of Tasmanian Pinot I thought at this price it would be New World jammy and not my cup of tea. How wrong can one be? This is an absolute belter!!!!. The 2013 Eddystone Pinot Noir has a lush core of fruit with a hint of spice and some nice length. Made by the Bay of Fires winery right on the climatic extremes of Pinot production this is a steal at 6 for £60
The white on offer this week is also very special -The 2012 Rijk's Touch of Oak Chenin Blanc.
Phenomenal benchmark Chenin from the Cape from one of the most awarded wineries in the Cape with regular 5 star ratings in the Platter Guide. This all comes from planting on virgin soils back in the 90's with virus free vines. £11.99p/b or 6 for £60
