Montalto Estate Pinot Noir 2013

Excellent Pinot! Stand and applaud. But if you need more info to be convinced, best you read on...

I lined this up with four other Pinots and the rivals were bowled over like skittles. Everything about this drop just oozes class.

In January I had the privilege of looking at this in barrel. Whilst I was doing a happy dance filled with excitement at the time, it has improved just a fraction more since then.

An attractive colour in the glass, dark cherry and earthy aromas are the highlights here with a little savoury charm. There's a hint of mushroom compost action in there too. A whiff of vanilla also plays its part.

Silky smooth with perfectly balanced acid and tannin, the finish is super long and moreish. There's a little more guts in this Pinot which I like. Actually, I like it a lot!

Go and get it. Please do!
