One of my favourite Pinot Noirâ€™s is back at Vintages. Amazing hit of flavor and complexity for the price. As ever there is a nod to the familyâ€™s European roots, â€œ European refinementâ€ is how the Vintages catalogue folks described it. A word of caution â€“ the wine tastes a little gamey at first, so open well ahead, or decant.
P.S. De Bortoli winery is located in an old settlement called Gulf Station â€“ hence the G.S. designation on the label.
