Montalto Estate Pinot Noir 2018


A stellar Pinot. Over a few days, this just shone bright like a diamond - Rihanna like if you will.

"Find light in the beautiful sea," Rhianna says. And I did. Head here and you have that covered. In a market bulging with so many wonderful Pinots, here's a wine that still makes its mark.

It's all dark cherries and earth. Some dark plums and some pan juices tied together with sumptuous savoury notes from the use of whole bunches. Touches of herb with those twiggy things Pinot brings so well with blood orange hiding in the background. Beautifully balanced, give this a chance to breathe and it sings gorgeously with those savoury characters clutching on to what seems a never-ending finish. It's hard to fault Pinots like this - a fabulous wine.
