Pinot noir in Australia has come a very long way. Every year now there are many gorgeous examples of this variety produced from a fairly narrow (but remarkably reliable) band of regions. The Yarra Valley in particular has hit a stunning patch of form, as the list below clearly shows. Giant Steps’ Applejack Vineyard Pinot Noir from 2022 is a ripping wine, and was a clear winner at the Awards judging.
