2019 Pinot noir
One of the most brilliant characteristics of Pinot noir as a variety is that it tends to mirror, reflect and express the season more clearly than any other variety. The 2019 Pinot noir shows some riper, more robust characters than are typical of Mount Mary Pinot noir, whilst still carrying our hallmark elegance and purity. On the nose there are stewed plums, quince, cherry liquor, sauté mushroom and spice. The palate is rich, decadent, silky and seamless. There are flavours of plum, stewed strawberry, cherries and fine grained toasty oak which will meld with the wine a little more with time in bottle. Currently, primary fruit characteristics feature more prominently in this wine over secondary characters of earth and undergrowth. Expect these savoury elements to become more obvious as the primary fruit subsides over the coming years.
