I went hunting in the cellar last night for a bottle of Pinot Noir and discovered a box of Innocent Bystander 2011 Pinot Noir from the Yarra Valley.

As you would expect from a wine that is seven years old, it is brick coloured, but still quite bright. On the nose there are smoky tones and red berries, and some delicate spices. It’s very smooth in the mouth, with a pleasing amount of acid and lingering tannins, and savoury, dark fruit flavours.

Dosage: 1-2 glasses with friend(s)
Take with food: baked figs stuffed with goat cheese, wrapped in prosciutto and sprinkled with thyme.
