MWC Pinot Noir 2016

(Victoria, Australia) $16

Yeah, I know. You might be thinking, she meant $61. But, this pinot noir is $16 and it’s a major steal. There’s lots of nice earthiness here plus notes of plums and tea. Beautifully drinkable on, say, any old Wednesday night. I’ve poured this wine blind, and pinot lovers guess New Zealand, Sonoma, or maybe even a humble Burgundy. No one guesses Australia, yet Oz makes some terrific pinots (especially in cool Victoria). MWC pinot won’t rock your world, but like me, you might be thrilled to drink good pinot noir at a third the price of what you’d expect. Bring on the roast chicken. (14% abv)
