The Combes Willow Lake is pretty good for a cheapie at the discounted price at Different Drop’s sale last week. Need 20 mins or so to open in the glass. Will probably come on sale again. Current sale DCB and Wickham’s might be good cheaper propositions. Qantas also have some Pinot mixed case at the moment


I vote for this thread to go back to 100% pinot 🙂

Can anyone recommend a wine similar to the Pt Leo Estate pinot noir. Was there a few weeks ago and surprisingly liked their pinot more than other ones that are recommended here for under $50. Not great at describing wines but seemed very fruity and great for a warm day.

Love their MV 6 clones but the 115’s and 114’s are interesting.

What do others think?
