Quartz Reef 'Bendigo Estate' Pinot Noir 2014
Strong, excellent weight and texture, powerful tannins.
Wine Enthusiast – Owner-winemaker Rudi Bauer believes in making Pinot Noirs that can age, so it's no surprise that this is darker, firmer and more muscular than most. There's plenty of toast, cedar and coffee-bean-like oak, but it's amply supported by plum and black cherry fruit. The finish is silky enough to make this wine approachable now, but it will likely improve through at least 2025.
In a mixed or straight case: $92.14
