Wine of the week: 2016 DCB Wine Pinot Noir
Chris Bendle, known for his excellence at Hoddles Creek Estate, recently established DCB Wines with a “desire to understand the unique terroir of the Yarra Valley”. Having tasted his latest Pinot Noir – a single vineyard offering from the Lone Star Creek Vineyard of Woori Yallock – it’s safe to say that he does indeed have a superb hold on the region’s potential.
Put simply, it’s an instant hit. Amongst intricate layers of earth and spice is a brilliant push of raspberry, red cherry, satsuma plum and dried fruits. Easy to drink, yet detailed, this is exactly what we like about Yarra Valley Pinot Noir.
