Mount Edward Pinot Noir 2009
So far Vintage 2009 is delivering some of the more purer forms of pinot noir that we have seen in Central Otago for some time. We experienced a growing season where temperatures and sunlight were never too hot nor too cold. A long hang time ensued with the vines delivering healthy clean fruit of small to average size berries. All this led to wines like our estate Pinot Noir 2009
Beautiful aromatics – cherries and bright berryfruits mixed with some darker fruit notes plus hints of herb and spice. On the palate there is that same purity of fruit expression and a smooth and silky texture with just enough tannin to support the the depth and weight of the flavours. Not so much a big wine as possessing power – easily one of the better estate wines to come out of Mount Edward.
