2009 Réflexion Pinot noir
After discarding two thirds of the 2009 Pinot noir, 10 of the best barrels were blended together to create the Reflexion Pinot noir. Although, a slightly earlier drinking style with a riper flavour spectrum to what we would ideally like to produce, this wine has made for some very pleasant drinking. The colour is certainly darker than what we have come to expect from Pinot noir grown on this site, this being a reflection of the season.
The nose shows riper fruits namely blackcurrant, plum and cherry with stewed quince, often a character seen in Mount Mary Pinot noir. On the palate the tannins are firm but do not distract from the overall balance of the wine. This wine is drinking well now. We are uncertain how this wine will develop with time so we are recommending caution with regard to cellaring.
