Mount Macleod Pinot Noir 2016
Fermented naturally (with one fermenter inoculated with a Pied de Cuve made the previous day) the wine was then raised in a mixture of stainless steel (with a long post ferment maceration) and old wooden barrels that have previously housed the Caledonia Australis Pinot. Medium bright red in colour with a purple tinge. Lifted and clean aromas of pomegranate, ripe strawberries and cherries sing away whilst earthier beetroot notes hum away in the background. The palate is juicy and fresh with subtle notes of clove and spice. Young and vibrant at the moment but there are fine grained fruit tannins that will see the wine develop and show lovely secondary characters as the wine reaches four or five years old.
In a mixed or straight case: $23.74
