I recently tried McWilliams Hanwood Estate Pinot Noir 2008. It was a gift to my husband, and he graciously passed it on to me. I did share, though.
Nice ruby color with a cherry aroma. The fresh fruit flavor was accompanied by a little bit of oak and some spice. This light-bodied wine is nicely structured with balanced tannins, but I thought it was a little dry for a pinot noir. I am starting to prefer more full-bodied, flavorsome reds.
Hanwood Estates boasts six generations of wine making – since 1877. Their wines are sourced from select vineyards in some of the best wine growing regions of Southeastern Australia. Other Hanwood varieties include: Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Jack’s Blend.
I believe the average price is less than $10 a bottle.
