Mount Pleasant ‘Mother Vine’ Hunter Valley Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from Australia - NSW
Review Date : 08-Feb-2017
Even ruby-red colour. This has a strong and positively intense nose with dense red fruit aromas, unfolding black fruits, whole berry lifted confectionary and jam suggestions. Rich and concentrated on palate, the succulence enhanced by fresh acidity, there are red and darker fruits tending liquorice, but with a thread of jamminess throughout. Whole berries? Warm climate? Very fine-grained tannins at the core lend a degree of elegance. For Mike Bennie, the quality is in the context, rather than typical parameters. This wine certainly qualifies in that regard, especially historically. Vines planted 1921. Hand-picked, 25% whole bunch, 13.0% alc., aged 10 months in 25% new puncheons. 18.5/20 Feb 2017 RRP $90.00
