Montalto Main Ridge Block Pinot Noir 2016


Super elegant and pretty - the Main Ridge area has that way with Pinot Noir.



The fruit comes off red clay loam soils on a northeast facing site sitting 156m above.

 A wine that exudes class from gate to post. Pristine red fruit is matched by elegant tannins. Think red currants, strawberries and raspberries to elevate you to a happy place. It's silky and delicate in the mouth but leaves enough of a footprint to consider its position and urge for more. A slow caress from dried herbs, forest floor - typical Pinot savoury characters unfurl with ease.

Classy, would you expect anything else from Montalto?

Drink now to eight years.
