William Downie Gippsland Pinot Noir 2015William Downie
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Australia (Gippsland, Victoria)
GRAPE VARIETAL: Pinot Noir
William Downie is considered one of the best Pinot Noir producers in Australia. With incredibly limited production, the opportunity to taste one of his amazing wines is extremely rare.
Though Downie only makes Pinot Noir, the location of his vineyards creates exciting variety in the resulting wines. The Gippsland Pinot Noir is medium to full bodied, with poached plum and clove flavours. The recommended cellaring time of for this wine is between five and ten years, though it is of course exquisite drunk now.
With such a limited number in supply, this highly sought after wine will be gone all too soon.
Recommended Food Pairing: Peking duck; roast beef and pork; mushrooms and mushroom risotto; salmon and tuna; brie, camembert, gruyere, goat cheese.
