Montalto Estate Pinot Noir 2019

 

Sophisticated is the word that spears into my mind when tasting this Pinot. Exceptional as always from Montalto.
Simon Black is such a considered winemaker, it's no surprise at all that his wines stand up proudly. He is such a perfectionist with his Chardonnay and Pinot Noir you want him to stuff it up to show he's human - just once. I jest of course.

This beauty soars and sends you to your happy place. It's all savoury, bunchy, and textural - classic Black handling. Gentle touches of strawberry and undergrowth swim slowly gathering momentum ever so subtly. A fine red apple acidity cuts in on close as brown spices shimmer to a long and most impressive finish. Pinot lovers ought to inject this into their veins.

Drink to eight years+
