Punt Road Airlie Bank Pinot Noir 2016

This wine from Punt Road in the Yarra Valley, a winery on the up, provides light, fresh and thirsty drinking.  It sees 20% whole bunches, a light fine and filter and is made in a ready to drink Beaujolais style.  In the glass, there are light aromatics of perfume, potpourri and roses.  The palate is fresh, medium bodied and has a mineral core.  A gorgeous wine that is great value at $22.  (Alc: 12.5%, Region: Good, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting?
