Polperro Mill Hill Pinot Noir 2015
I like its curves and feels though this delicious Pinot is my least preferred of the three Single Vineyard releases - oh to be picky.
The Mill Hill vineyard sits 270m above and is just over 20 years old. The wines sees 30% new tight grained French oak and is in barrel for a total of 16 months.
What jumps out for me is the earthy and peppery characters. Cherries and red berries tick away and dense undergrowth seems to gain momentum. Clove and pine needle type aromas peel off with more time in the glass. There's some restrained power here but the finish is fine and long. Good stuff.
