A showstopper Pinot from the Mondillo team. Fruit was hand harvested, 100% de-stemmed and aged for 11 months in French Oak to give this concentrated, full-bodied Pinot packed with dark cherry and berry fruit flavours.
The winery writes "Deep ruby in colour with aromas of cherry and plum, creamy flavours of dark cherry with a savoury spicy complexity and a smooth velvety richness. Enjoy – Salute!"
Cameron Douglas writes "Fabulous colour and bouquet, varietal, youthful, packed with pinosity showcasing aromas of black cherry and black currant, sweet fresh farmers market raspberries, dark roses, new barrel smoke and spices. On the palate - complex, very youthful and delicious with primary fruit flavours that reflect the bouquet, firm tannins and abundant acidity. A wine that simply needs time in your cellar to relax, integrate and develop."
Bob Campbell MW writes "Consistently top Bendigo pinot noir with intense, ripe plum, dark cherry, cassis flavours plus a seasoning of spice. A vibrant, high-energy wine that can be enjoyed now but will develop well with a little bottle age."
