Montalto Merricks Block Pinot Noir 2013

Tasted single blind in amongst a trio of three Montalto single-vineyard Pinots Noir. So, wine identities are known, but hidden at the point of tasting. Why? Because I can and to keep me on my toes.

Clone: MV6
Vineyard Profile: Grey loam over clay
Aspect: 55m elevation, due East facing

Red fruit crumble, lovely lifted, fragrant aromatics on show here. Hints of Asian spice, provides a darker glimpse into the wine.

Soft, pillowy entry, red fruit medley on display here. A little of the spice seen prior makes a re-appearance on the mid and aft palate. Tannin exquisitely enmeshed in the wine, fine grained.

Feels effortless, touch of tang aids refreshment, long on the finish. 93

Tasted on: Sunday 15th February, a Fruit day
Source: Sample
Price: $65
