Description

You will find Mount Edward wines in the cellars of serious Pinot Noir collectors and on the menu at many of the world's best restaurants. Crafted from low yielding organic vineyards, production is extreme in quality but never large. This immaculate 2016 was vinified using natural yeasts in open top fermenters and judiciously hand plunged. Fermentation was carried out using de-stemmed fruit including the addition of 25% whole bunch. It spent 11 months in French oak - 15 % new - before racking and settling in tank for a further 4 months.

Smells

The aromatics are highly perfumed with complex dark berry, spice and dried herbs.

Tastes

Excellent intensity of dark fruits within silky tannin and lush texture. The fruit/oak balance is perfect and the lengthy, seamless transition from go to whoa is subtly powerful and utterly elegant. Organic, no filtration or fining... a naturally made Pinot Noir with the structure and depth to age gracefully for 10+ years, but hard to wait any length of time given how delicious it is already.
