42 Degrees South is the entry-level label for high-quality Coal River Valley producer Frogmore Creek and utilises not only estate fruit but also grapes sourced from the rest of the state. This is quite a bold pinot; rich and quite intense, but also with an easy drinkability. Winemaker Alain Rousseau has blended sustainably-grown estate fruit with grapes from the East Coast to produce an early/mid-term drinking pinot with red berry fruits to the fore. Nicely balanced. $29. www.frogmorecreek.com.au.
