Vertical tasting notes
2018 Pinot noir
Mount Mary Pinot noir has always walked a fine line between bright, fresh primary fruit and darker, earthy secondary complexities. The fruit grown in our vineyard naturally lends itself so well to this style. We choose to work with these characteristics in the winery rather than push the wines in another direction. We have made this style of Pinot noir for 40 years now. Any changes in winemaking follow the pursuit of perfecting and improving within this style. This wine speaks volumes about what it is we are striving to achieve in the context of Pinot noir. The nose opens with hints of strawberry, blackcurrant, quince, spice and some toasty oak flavours. There are many layers to the palate which shows a certain density/viscosity which we have watched build in bottle over the past 12 months. The palate is packed with flavours of strawberry, cherry and rhubarb along with earthy, spicy complexities. Through all this is an interwoven soft tannic structure giving the wine grip, length and longevity.
