Eddystone Point 2014 Pinot Noir

I loved this wine at the Tasmanian Red Wine Weekend a few weeks ago, and I enjoyed the new-release 2014 even more the other night, when a bottle mysteriously evaporated over a couple of hours. Eddystone Point is nominally the second label of Bay of Fires, producing wines that are more immediately accessible and more cheaply priced. This has everything you'd want in a "drink now" cool-climate pinot; freshness, vibrancy, raspberry and dark cherry notes, hints of Asian spice and undergrowth. It is wonderfully supple - and dangerously easy to drink. $28.
