One of the wines I love, when it is in fine form, is pinot noir. This is poetical wine with definite feminine traits. Pinot has never been regarded as an Australian specialty though the quality has improved dramatically in recent years. I made some expensive recommendations here. But with the current wine glut some amazing less expensive options are appearing - fantastic wines at more reasonable prices.
Boccaccio Cellars in Kew currently has a cleanskin Pinot Noir made at the Hoddles Creek vineyard that they sell for $10. The regular pinot Hoddles sell is $16-99 and I reckon the wine mentiond here is a bargain even at the latter price. It is glorious wine - the nose is pure feminine, seductive pinot. Then great flavor of blah rose petals, blah cow dung, blah, blah, blah, violets in a blah, blah, blah. Sorry but I don't have the technology or deceit to adequately publicise the greatness of this wine.
Its a great drop for this kind of money - and I am not getting a kickback from Boccaccio. An indication of how consumers gain in a glut at the expense of unfortunate suppliers. Give it a try if you can and let me know if you agree with my assessment or can identify similar bargains in the wine world. We will publicise such here as economically sensible approaches to quality boozing. Help us boozers, such as fxh and others.
