Montalto Single Vineyard Main Ridge Block Pinot Noir 2017

Simply gorgeous Pinot. Of the Single Vineyard Pinots, this was the shining light after day one of tasting. Wow factor and then some.

Elegance and poise rolled into one. Superfine spices cradle a mouthful of dainty fruit which slowly reveals itself. More on the red fruit spectrum, bright acidity adds life. Well handled oak sits behind sour cherry which wanders through fading to the background. Expected Pinot characters of undergrowth and forest floor tick away at a good pace. Dainty tannins are silky and clutch to a long and salivating finish. Brilliant!

Drink now to eight years.
