Mythopia ‘Illusion’ Arbaz Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from Other
Review Date : 08-Feb-2017
Dark red colour with black-red hues, and depth, beginning to show a little garnet. Incredibly full, solid and dense in concentration with idiosyncratic dark-red and black fruits, dark herbs, resinous and nutty oak, great layers of green and black complexities. Very fulsome and structured on palate with rich and lush fruit alongside dark herbs, stalk, game and cedar. Liquorice and spices unfold. The acidity is soft and integrated, yet this is fresh, partly from the vegetal and herbal influences. Incredibly flavoursome and a startling range of flavour, not all positive, but overall offering immense interest. From 3 ha of vines, hand-picked, mainly destemmed, 12.0% alc., in barrel for 2-3 years. "No added anything.” A single barrel bottling. "It will polarise”, said Mike Bennie. 18.5+/20 Feb 2017 RRP $85.00
