Montalto Estate Pennon Hill Pinot Noir 2015

Plenty of love for the Pennon Hill range from Montalto Estate over the years. The Pennon Hill range represents a regional composition and also a philosophy with intent to produce bright and fresh wines.

All about the cherries, kirsch; expressly aromatic as is often the Pennon Hill way - alluring, yet with a depth and semblance of spice. 

A distinct lightness, ethereal - if you like - yet immediately at odds to this comes an intense spice, and a freshening acidity. A wine of opposites, with tannin both firm and fine. 

Length is generous. This is an outstanding release from Montalto and you'd have to suggest it would age gracefully too. 93
