Description

Takahiro Koyama learned his trade at Mountford Estate under the stewardship of legendary CP Lin (studying and completing viticulture and Oenology at Lincoln University also helped). Takahiro split his winemaking between New Zealand, California and Germany, until in 2017, with the help of some Japanese financial backers he purchased Mountford Estate (his alma mater). Bob Campbell is a big fan noting the he's a "winemaker worth watching" - he also bestowed 95 points to his 2016 release. The William's Vineyard Pinot Noir comes off a limestone rich single vineyard, with the fruit being hand harvested before natural fermentation and French Oak maturation (25% new) for 18 months. This is sophisticated, unfined, unfiltered Pinot Noir with serious depth, concentration, finesse and elegance and a wine that can age 7+ years with ease.

Smells

Brooding dark cherry, subtle spicy French Oak, Christmas cake and dark chocolate

Tastes

Powerful and mouth filling with silky tannins and incredibly long length. The palate carries notes of sweet cherry, doris plum and subtle wild herb.
