Holm Oak 2018 The Protege Pinot Noir

Affordable pinot noir is an increasingly elusive beast. Affordable cool-climate pinot noir from Tasmania is even rarer. Cheap pinots often seem to be soft dry reds without a hint of pinosity. Under $20 - forget it. This one is five bucks above the line, but well worth sampling. It's bright and juicy with plenty of bright red fruit flavours, probably not destined for for the long haul, but who cares? This is a terrific summer quaffer that can be enjoyed chilled. Good work from husband and wife team Tim and Bec Duffy. $25.
