Vertical tasting notes
Our Quintet blend remains the flagship wine of our estate, representing the initial vision Dr John Middleton had when discovering the unique site that is Mount Mary. It’s hard to remember a Quintet that displayed such lifted aromatics on release as this 2017 vintage. The nose is particularly vibrant and fruit forward at this early stage, bursting with aromas of cassis, cherry, plum and chocolate. There is a hint of earth/ undergrowth/cigarbox here playing second fiddle to the bright expressive fruit. The palate follows on with a similar theme with flavours of blackcurrant, plum, liquorice and chocolate. The tannins and acid profile give this wine such beautiful structure, purity and persistence through the palate which we have not seen in a young Quintet for quite some time. We are extremely excited to see how this wine will evolve over the coming 2-3 decades.
