- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
For years, Jonothan Mogg and Belinda Low have bought grapes from local grower Alastair Taylor, and in 2015 they finally managed to get their hands on a small amount of his coveted Pinot Meunier fruit. The wine they have made is a fine, elegant example of the variety with a distinctively European feel. It has freshness and appeal as a young wine and amazing longevity in the cellar. If you are looking to get acquainted with this often overlooked grape, this is the perfect place to start.
What it Tastes Like
Fresh berries, smoke, autumn leaves and a mysterious herbal note running through the perfume. Smells unreal. The palate is fresh and juicy, showing cherries and spice on a bed of fine powdery tannins. Gorgeous drinking now but with plenty of gas in the tank if you want to cellar it for a while.
95 points. "There is ample depth (and clarity) to the colour, and exceptional energy to the palate with its plum and black cherry fruit. Savoury complexity builds through to the finish and lingering aftertaste." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
VINEYARD The vineyard was planted in 1990, close planted and put onto a Scot Henry trellis system in order to maximise the sunlight into the canopy and enhance ripening. It's cane pruned and hand picked and generally yields about 5-7 T per hectare. WINEMAKING Some whole bunch, around 20-30% with the addition of a small amount of Pinot Noir. Basket pressed and into 2-3 year old French Oak for 10 months. Lately fined and filtered for bottling.
Closure: Screw Cap
Bottle Size: 750ml
