Lining up all the Montalto Single Vineyard Pinot Noirs is always a privilege. They all bring their unique personality to the table catering to a wide range of Pinot lovers. But for me, the Tuerong sits on top. It has done so for a long time now. There's just something about its presence dragging you closer.
From the northern end of the peninsula where it is warmer and drier, this saw 52% whole bunch and 30% new oak. It's sleek, polished and caresses the mouth seductively. It's focused yet complex. It's measured and generous all in the same breath. Those whole bunches add texture and skinsy feels as dark fruits and plums glide through the mouth. Superfine and absolutely divine, go here.
Drink to eight years.
