If you're like me, and enjoy the lighter taste of a Pinot with the richness of a fruiter wine then this is a nice combo. While not the purist's favourite it is a wonderful wine to enjoy with food or quaff.

Very light bodied Pinot Noir. Very simple with minimal complexity.

After enjoying De Bortoli's Gulf Station I decided to pick up the Windy Peak.

Tasty wine with nice fruit bottom. It lingers for a short while but is overall clean and not overly dry.

Very drinkable and reasonable value.

Rachelle: Big Fan.Big berry
Jeff: Very berry. Not a hugely complex wine, bit of a fruit bomb.
