Ben Haines 2020 Make a Wilderness Nine One Six Vineyard Steels Creek Pinot Noir (Yarra Valley)

Cellar Selection

Ben Haines's specialty is in making highly textural, drink-now cool climate wines, but this is a Pinot firmly for the cellar. The nose is fairly quiet, but cherry, blueberry, floral, sap and savory characters paddle just beneath the surface, suggesting layers of flavor still to come. The palate is tightly structured with fine, talc-like tannins that cinch but never fight with the fresh fruit and excellent natural acidity. Drink 2023–2030. Christina Pickard
