William Downie 2006 Mornington Pinot Noir

Type:

Red Wine
Bill Downie was named young wine maker of the year in 2007 (I think it was '07) and with good reason: he only makes Pinot, and it's good stuff. The Mornington version is a more fruit driven wine than his Yarra Valley wine, but don't dismiss it as a "watery pinot" - it's got plenty of spine to back it up. Bright berry flavours on the palate go well with gamey foods, or rich sauces - we enjoyed it with the Stuffed chicken with truffle and pomegranate that we did on the first podcast. Highly recommended, and worth watching in the future.
