Main Ridge Pinot Meunier 2012

2016 bottle image
Pours a light, matte garnet; translucent, nothing to hide and plenty to enjoy. 

Still retaining fruit, primarily. It redolent of slightly under-ripe raspberry, perhaps a little mint and assorted spice in the mix. 

Even at 6 it is still primary. Fruit is present, it sits beautifully in the palate, almost hovering just-so. The fruit makes way for spice, somewhat intensely - it veritably expands across the palate, and though giving length does truncate the fruit. 91 

Tasted on: Saturday 24th February, a Root day
