Montalto Main Ridge Block Pinot Noir 2012

A single vineyard wine coming from red clay loam soils which sit 156 metres above sea level. There is a map on the back label indicating where the single vineyards sites are. Clever.

I really enjoyed this Pinot. It's savoury with dry herb and leaf litter aromas. Spicy cherry fruit coats the palate very well. The fruit is destemmed and I feel that this wine, compared to the other single vineyard wines from this release, is great for drinking now.

There is a some good depth of flavour here too which I also did enjoy. I'm not one for light and weak Pinots.

A tick from me.
